Today was the LifeBanc Gift of Life Walk/Run. A record breaking 1,500 people turned up at Blossom Music Center for the event. Zoe sat in “the green chair” and got her picture taken. She also talked a little about why organ donation is important to her. The picture’s from the event should be posted either to LifeBanc’s site or to their facebook page. As soon as I see them I’ll post a link here.
I’m happy to say that Team Zoe’s Heart raised $320 for the even today. That’s $120 over our goal. We plan to participate again next year and I’d love to see Team Zoe’s Heart grow in number next year. There were some impressive teams there walking and running today.
Please visit www.lifebanc.org for information on donating, events, and registering to become and organ an tissue donor. They said on the news tonight that there are currently 108,000 people waiting for organs and tissue transplants. 1,800 of those are in Ohio.
