Dash for donations

Mark your calendar for August 11th. 8am. 
You need to register before Aug. 8th.  There is a 5 k run, and a 3 k walk we usually do the walk. Usually just do the team registration because more than 5 of us go. So $20 then kids are $15. You get a shirt, They have prize drawings, and Dryers is usually there with free ice cream or Popsicles. They have the donor taxi there for pictures etc. Fun event to raise awareness. Today at a meeting I was at with Barbara she said they should be coming out with a new commercial soon, and she has been pushing to have a liver story for Yes Utah! I told here it might be fun next year to have the taxi and organ donor families walk in the days of 47 parade together. 

I am looking at having a get together in September. 

Hope to see many of you at the Dash for Donations.

15 Year Transplant Reunion

August 28th 2011 will mark the 15 year anniversary for the Liver transplant team at Primary Children's Hospital. Since then they have done over 150 liver transplants. Around 200 people attended. Dr. Linda Book highlighted the first, latest, oldest, and youngest recipients. There were also several in attendance that are waiting for transplants.
If you attended today and picked up a business card for Utah Liver Families please email me if you would like to be added to our email list. We try to get together several times a year. Our next get together I am thinking early October at Wheeler farm if they still have wagon rides, and if they have a pumpkin patch.

We were featured in ABC 4 news and Fox 13 during the 5pm news. When they have online links I will update the post.

Thank you transplant team and Primary Children's Hospital
