Brian Bush, co-chairman of Donate Life Illinois, had the opportunity to meet a very special couple who are riding tricycles across the country to raise funds and garner attention to the importance of organ, eye and tissue donation. Brian shares his encounter with us in today’s post. Thanks Brian!
I had the great opportunity to meet a North Carolina couple riding recumbent tricycles across the country to raise awareness for organ, tissue and eye donation. They stopped in Southern Illinois the week of May 24th.
I had the chance to have breakfast with Ken & Jen and talk with them at the Little Grassy Lake campground in Makanda, IL. I gave them Donate Life Illinois t-shirts and supplies to take with them on their trip. We helped to set up interviews with local newspapers.

They are great advocates and are a great inspiration riding in memory of Alex. Follow Ken & Jen via their blog as they travel across the country.
