COLORADO DONOR AND RECIPIENT FAMILIES TO ACCOMPANY “GIFT OF LIFE” BALLOON IN 9NEWS PARADE OF LIGHTS | November 27, 2013
For the second year in a row, the annual 9News Parade of Lights will include a Donate Life Colorado balloon escorted by families of organ, eye and tissue donors and recipients.
This year’s “Gift of Life” float, shaped like a present, represents the ultimate gift made possible by organ and tissue donation, and is one of the new, creative ways Donor Alliance is getting the message to the community. Our friends at Donor Alliance, the organ procurement organization for Colorado and Wyoming, manage Donate Life Colorado, the donor registry for the state.
Donor families, recipients, and Donor Alliance staff and volunteers will come together at the 9News Parade of Lights in Denver on Friday, December 6 and Saturday, December 7 to participate in the parade and celebrate the impact organ, eye and tissue donation has on the community.
