Saturday, June 23, 2012 Organ Donor for Life will be joining with the New York Center for Donation & Transplant’s Cycle for Life team to participate in the Centurion New York. The Center for Donation & Transplantation is one of 58 federally designated organ procurement organizations in the US and serves parts of NY, VT and MA. We will be riding 25 miles through the foothills of the Adirondacks and around Lake George. Some of us will go on to cycle 50 and 100 miles on Sunday!
We’re looking forward to cycling with a group of organ transplant recipients and donor families from our region. Last summer, I’m pretty certain Harold was the only heart transplant recipient racing in the Pine Bush Triathlon.
Hopefully, this will be just the start of many more partnerships and races in the years ahead. I’ve already started planning for Harold’s 20th anniversary of his heart transplant in 2015.
