Lifeline of Ohio has been busy serving our communities in 2018! As we gear up for a productive summer, we wanted to share a few initiatives with you.

First, in conjunction with 10TV, we produced a 30-minute special focusing on the Ripple Effect and how the choice of one can have a vast impact on so many. We encourage you to watch this piece and share it with your family and friends. Have a conversation about donation. It can save lives.

Secondly, summer is finally here which means it’s Dash for Donation time! Mark your calendars and join us on Saturday, July 14 at Genoa Park in Columbus for the 5K and family fun walk to raise awareness for organ, eye and tissue donation. The Dash is always a great time to meet others in the community who are connected to donation.

While you’re out enjoying the summer season, I invite you to visit our Donor Memorial at 770 Kinnear Road in Columbus. The Memorial honors the heroes of donation and the ripple effect they’ve had on their recipients, family, community and world. The Memorial is especially peaceful and welcoming this time of year and we would love to see you. If you can’t make it in person, please visit our Donor Memorial website for a virtual experience.

We look forward to the rest of 2018 and helping to save and heal lives through organ, eye and tissue donation. It takes compassionate donors, their families and many talented staff to ensure the donation process happens and happens well. I would like to acknowledge every one of the Lifeline of Ohio staff for their talent, professionalism and dedication to serving our community!

Sincerely,

Kent Holloway
