Donor Alliance teamed up with the Casper Coyotes hockey team this year for the first ever Donate Life Weekend to promote Donate Life Wyoming – the organ, eye and tissue registry for Wyoming. It was an action packed weekend as the Coyotes took on their rivals from the south, the Colorado Eagles. Fans with hearts on their driver’s licenses had the opportunity to enter to win an autographed Coyotes jersey. By the end of the weekend over 150 registered donors were in the running to win the jersey.
The Yotes rolled out the red carpet on Saturday night for Casper native, heart recipient, and Donor Alliance Advocate for Life, Jason Wynia, who started the game out with a ceremonial puck drop. “We are so grateful to be able to partner with the Casper Coyotes to raise awareness for organ, eye and tissue donation. Their support has really enabled us to get the word out about the nearly 200 Wyomingites currently waiting for a lifesaving organ transplant, and why it’s so important to register to be a donor,” said Donor Alliance Community Relations Coordinator, Alison Gillum. The Coyotes will be promoting Donate Life Wyoming all season long. If you’re interested in catching a game, please visit their website for more information: http://www.caspercoyotes.com/.
