Double-Lung Recipient Reaches Milestone!
On September 22nd, Gavin Maitland will run his first half marathon since having a double-lung transplant in 2008. Maitland will be running with Team Transplant, the American Transplant Foundation’s charity running group, to raise awareness about the gift of organ donation.
“I’m running because I love to run and because I can. I want to demonstrate that an organ is the greatest gift in the world. Everyone should realize that by being an organ donor, you have the ability to not just save lives, but to transform them.” – Gavin Maitland of Boulder, Colorado
