Last Saturday I attended the second annual Summit For Life with Chris Klug in Aspen, Colorado. The mission of this organization is to raise awareness about the importance of organ and tissue donation. Chris Klug, an Olypmpic medalist in the 2004 Park City Olympics received a liver transplant in 2000 in Denver and is the founder of http://www.summitforlife.org/
220 people raced to the top of Aspen mountain in a blinding snowstorm on Saturday evening. The first racer crossed the finish line in just over 58 minutes! But the most touching finisher was the last racer who crossed the finish line in 3 hours celebrating the 8th anniversary of his liver transplant!
Being a liver donor for my brother Jim, this event is very dear to me. Please contact me if you would like any information regarding our transplant.
