The second annual Team Transplant was an incredible success! On Sunday, June 6th, 171 Team Transplant members cycled in the 2010 Subaru Elephant Rock Ride to show their support of the American Transplant Foundation and organ and tissue donation. Our riders and sponsors raised an incredible $63,000 for the Foundation! Twenty-five transplant recipients and five living kidney donors particpated on this year’s team.
After finishing their 100, 62, 34, 25, or seven mile courses, Team Transplant members were invited back to the team tent where volunteers treated them to smoothies, milkshakes, and massages. Volunteers also staffed an informational table at the tent to inform the 7,000 other Elephant Rock riders and their families about the importance of organ and tissue donation.
Thank you to our 171 team members and dozens of volunteers for making this event such a success! Visit the links and watch the video below to learn more about the event.
