Irish Judo throws its full support behind the ‘Opt for Life’ campaign.
The Irish Judo Association, have agreed to back the Opt for Life campaign in every way it can. Sean Fleming, the Honorary General Secretary of the sport says ‘The Association is honoured to be associated with the Opt for Life campaign. It is our intention to be actively involved in promoting the message of the importance of organ donation after death and the soft opt-out law that is being proposed which is based on family consent. We will be pro-active in the promotion of the Opt for Life campaign by having the charity logo on the gear of our international players and we will commit to a campaign of awareness and education of our members and supporters through our social media sites and website.
