I run a lot of races for a lot of different charities and the Dash For Donation is by far the most important and memorable event I participate in each year. The Dash for Donation was created to raise awareness and money for organ and tissue donation.
On Saturday my family and friends gathered together and participated in this fundraising 5K for the 2nd year in a row in honor of my brother. Trevor was an organ and tissue donor and this is such a positive way to celebrate and remember his life! I am always inspired by the stories I hear at this race each year and my family and I will continue to support this great cause.
Trevor is gone from this earth but we will never quit celebrating his amazing life and the impact he imprinted upon all of us for generations to come. Through his selfless gift of organ and tissue donation his vibrant spirit lives on forever! I will spare you my words and let the pictures tell the rest of the story. Thanks so much to Andrea from Wasatch & Beyond for capturing some great shots of this memorable day.
I am so incredibly thankful and grateful to everyone that came out and supported this amazing cause. Organ donation is something I am extremely passionate about as I have seen the countless miracles that come from the selfless gift of donation. I am incredibly proud of Trevor for chosing to be a donor and so glad that we can contribute to this cause and celebrate his life!
