Gift of Life Walk 2009

"Let's take a long walk"
-Jill Scott
Little Bird and I just signed up to participate in the 2009 MOTTEP Life Walk. It's presented by the Gift of Life Minority Organ Tissue Transplant Education Program (that's what MOTTEP stands for). If you read this blog regularly, you know all about sweet little Shay, whom we adore. We are forever grateful to the donor family who decided to give Shay an amazing gift 5 years ago: a new heart. We are eager to build awareness of organ donation and the importance of being registered. A few weeks ago my friend Maggie (shout-out!) told me that after reading a post I wrote about Shay she went ahead and registered to be an organ donor. She was really excited to put that "donor" sticker on her driver's license. I'm pretty proud of mine as well! It's so easy, all you've gotta do is click here to register. If you want to join us on July 25th for the Life Walk at Belle Isle, just click here. We'll be participating on Shay's Team and you can, too!!
