Still Not Sure?
Thinking about Tabor Trot, but just not sure if you will feel like heading to beautiful Mt. Tabor park for an awesome morning gathering and stroll with your Donate Life family?
Cyndi’s sure. She needs a lifesaving lung transplant and she’ll be commuting more than seven hours round trip to Tabor. Cyndi’s going to need her oxygen tank, but she’s been training for the 2-mile walk at her local park. She’s among the top fundraisers and is bringing a great group – and Cyndi wants you to join her at her first Tabor Trot.
Two years ago, Cyndi had no idea she'd be part of the Donate Life family. She was enjoying an active life and staying busy as the owner of a popular diner. That all changed when interstitial lung disease struck suddenly last spring, and left her fighting to breathe.
One year later, she's waiting for a transplant and has had to give up the business she loved. Needless to say, she has a lot on her plate, but she is excited to do her part with her Donate Life family to inform, inspire and bring hope for all those who wait.
Angela’s sure. She is so grateful for every step, even the difficult ones. Angela's been checking out the 2-mile course at Mt. Tabor, the longest walk she's had in years. She's been fundraising, too, and has lots of friends, family, and even her doctor joining her at the Trot. She's excited to to meet donor families, living donors, recipients and transplant candidates - and Angela wants to see you there, too.
Severe diabetes and kidney failure had Angela in a wheelchair for years, unable to walk or stand. She was very close to death when she finally received a pancreas and kidney transplant last May.
Now, Angela can walk again! It's a struggle, but she's working hard to carry on the legacy of her donor, Mark. As she grieves with the family of the gracious young man who would have celebrated his 25th birthday this May, she celebrates Mark and his generosity with every step she takes.
