The “Pause to Give Life Event” is happening at ECU Health Medical Center on Wednesday morning. This event honors organ donors and recipients, regardless of the weather. Despite only about 50 percent of adults in North Carolina being registered organ donors, there are 3,000 people waiting for organ and tissue donations in the state, and over 100,000 people waiting nationally, according to the Greenville hospital.

The specific start time of the event is at 10:08 a.m., when ECU Health will raise the Donate Life Flag. This will be followed by a 30-second moment of silence to recognize donors, their families, those waiting for donations, and recipients who have received the gift of life. The ceremony will take place at the ECU Health Medical Center flag pole at 2100 Stantonsburg Road.

In light of the weather conditions and a First Alert Weather Day, ECU Health plans to have the flag-raising ceremony outside at the flag pole. However, if it is raining, the ceremony will be moved to the chapel at the hospital.
