Earlier this week, a Facebook post from Jennifer over at Gift of Life Michigan tipped me off on an amazing athletic and organ donation outreach effort going on by three brothers over in MI. In 2003, brothers Trevor, Lon and Brandon lost their youngest brother Chase in a tragic car accident. An avid supporter of the issue and a registered donor, Chase’s organs helped save the lives of seven other people.
I had the chance to exchange emails with Trevor and Lon earlier this week and we look forward to having them swing through Chicago in August for their planned participation in the Chicago Accenture Triathlon. Be sure to track their progress here and I’ve added Lon and Trevor to our blogroll for easy links to their updates. You can also drop the team a donation to support their efforts on their fundraising page here.
Also, be sure to check out an interview the team did with an NBC affiliate in Michigan earlier this week.
