Organ Donation

Ian Jenkins became an organ, tissue and cornea donor this past May at the University of Michigan Health System. Ian was only 15 when he passed away but he lived life with a purpose. His purpose lives on through his gifts to others who now have new and improved life.

The Donate Life Coalition of Michigan, an affiliate of Donate Life America, raises awareness about organ and tissue donation through education and outreach activities like this one. The Coalition works closely with Gift of Life Michigan, the state’s only federally designated organ and tissue recovery organization, and with the Michigan Eye-Bank, a charitable organization dedicated to the restoration of sight.

The Race has started and you can visit (look in the upper left hand corner for the link). Geoff has dedicated this ride to the memory of Ian Jenkins. Geoff says, "Although I have never met him, he was an amazing young man who lives on in others. He passed just over a year ago but he gave amazing gifts of life to many people. His picture is on my bike to help me push through the pain."

Please spread the word on organ donation and transplantation. Organ donation saves lives.
