As you pass by booth 435 at the 10TV Health and Fitness Expo Aug. 18 and 19, you will likely hear shouts of excitement, bells ringing and see lots of smiles. Our goal is to “celebrate life” at our booth, and we hope our idea will be contagious!
Celebrating life is what we do at Lifeline of Ohio. We celebrate and honor the memories of our organ and tissue donors and join in the celebration of a second chance at life for transplant recipients everywhere.
Our booth will feature many ways to celebrate life: cornhole, a photobooth, fun giveaways and appearances by our very own Honey Bee. If you make the choice to celebrate life by registering as an organ and tissue donor at the event, you will be asked to ring a victory bell!
In addition to our booth, Lifeline of Ohio is sponsoring the “Donate Life Presentation Stage,” located in the center of the exhibit hall. The stage will host celebrities, presentations and some very special central Ohioans. Each day of the expo, individuals touched by organ and tissue donation will share their stories with emcee Angela Pace. In addition to their testimonials, they will be available to answer questions about organ and tissue donation.
