Hundreds Join the 2nd Annual Donate Life Wyoming Scavenger Hunt
On the weekend of August 14 – 17, participants prepared to solve missions and learn more about the gift of life made possible through organ, eye and tissue donation at the 2nd Annual Donate Life Wyoming Scavenger Hunt! Throughout the weekend of fun they honored the lives of organ, eye and tissue donors; celebrated the lives of organ, eye and tissue recipients; and recognized those who continue to wait for a lifesaving transplant.
The Donate Life Forest Honors those Touched by Donation and Transplantation
The event featured a new virtual Donate Life Forest – a special place where participants could share their family connections to donation and transplantation. From deceased donors, to transplant recipients, to waitlist candidates and living donors, the Donate Life Forest honors the gift of life symbolized by the cycle of life witnessed in Aspen groves in forests.
Donate Life Wyoming Scavenger Hunt —Together, Though Apart
Connected across the miles through a phone app, participants from all over the country joined the event, shared stories of hope with pictures, text answers and inspiring videos. Participants also had the opportunity to learn the facts of donation & transplantation, while being inspired by local stories of Wyomingites touched by organ, eye and tissue donation. In addition, event exhibitors, shared their own lifesaving missions from wellness, to mental health and student advocacy groups and participants interacted with each to solve more missions within the phone app. From Idaho to Indiana, Wyoming to Colorado, and Florida to Texas, people all across the nation showed up to show their support for organ, eye and tissue donation, solved missions and shared in the fun of the Donate Life Wyoming Scavenger Hunt experience – “Together, Though Apart”!
Winners were selected and surprised with prizes from a few local Wyoming businesses who joined the event in support of organ, eye and tissue donation.
