One thing that I am forever thankful for is being blessed enough to be a part of the following ……..
Last year I wrote a post in August called “An Incredible Event” (click on this link to read it). It is a fund-raising event for my local “Organ Procurement Organization”, also known as an OPO, by the name of LifeBanc. These are the folks that control ALL the records for donors and recipients, run hundreds of programs to register potential donors and work with the hospitals during the roughest times in some people’s lives. LifeBanc is an INCREDIBLE group of people.
There are, I believe 65 OPO’s in the United States.
Last year’s event was truly An Incredible Event. This year’s event is this coming Saturday. Our team’s goals were higher, we have more people walking with us and I know it will be an emotion filled day. For me, it’s a solemn holiday ….. as good or better than Thanksgiving.
A huge tip of the hat to both of the Co-captains, that are also great friends.
I will write a follow-up post early next week.
Here’s the link to our team’s page ~ http://lifebanc.donorpages.com/2011GiftofLifeWalkRun/RowdyHearts2011/
