We gathered all together for a few reasons: to thank you for your participation with Team Transplant; to give away team prizes; to acknowledge our top fundraisers, top Sub Teams, and the transplant recipients and living donors among us; and to celebrate the most successful year for Team Transplant yet! Together, we raised $90,000 dollars to support our mission to save lives through transplant!
With these funds, American Transplant Foundation can continue to support the most vulnerable transplant patients in need; raise awareness about both living and deceased donation; and advocate for smart transplant-related policies that will save and enhance lives.
Of course we cannot forget to recognize our top fundraisers! These individuals really went above and beyond to support American Transplant Foundation and make Team Transplant a success. The top three fundrasiers were Jeff Leone raising $3,000, Vienna Danna raising $4,915, and Brian Cerise raising $6,880. All top fundraisers received their fundraising prizes!
Our outstanding subteams also must be reconized for their hard work! Our top fundraising subteams include the Organ Grinders, Team UCH Transplanttrekkers, Team West Metro Firefighters, Tandem for Life, and V.V’s Rock Stars.
Thank you all so much for riding with Team Transplant. You are an inspiration to all of us, and your participation is so important to raise awareness about what it really means to give or receive the Gift of Life.
