Donor Alliance is very excited to announce our partnership with IndyCar Driver, Donor Brother and Colorado resident Stefan Wilson. For Wilson, the driver of the No. 25 Driven2SaveLives Andretti Autosport Honda Indy car, donation and transplantation is a cause that hits close to home. Stefan’s older brother Justin died tragically in a racing accident in 2015. Justin was a registered organ, eye and tissue donor who heroically saved 5 lives through organ donation. “Organ Donation is something that is very personal to me and my family,” noted Wilson, who moved to Colorado last year. “As most will already know, my older brother Justin was a donor and saved five lives in 2015. Since losing Justin, it’s been really rewarding to work with Indiana Donor Network and meet donor families, recipients and people that are on the National wait list. Partnering with Donor Alliance allows me to continue that work in my new home state of Colorado and I couldn’t be more thankful.”
Stefan will be a very visible advocate for donation and transplantation in Colorado and Wyoming, serving as a celebrity spokesman and the face of our National Donate Life Month campaign this April. “It is hard to put into words how grateful we are to work with incredible advocates like Stefan Wilson,” said Sue Dunn, chief executive officer of Donor Alliance. “We’re so thankful for the people that are willing to share their stories in order to help us educate the public on the importance of donation and transplantation. We are hopeful that by sharing the powerful impact donation has had on Stefan’s life, Coloradans, Wyomingites and others around the country will be inspired to give the gift of life by registering as an organ, eye and tissue donors.”
Stefan will be helping us kick off National Donate Life Month at the Denver Auto Show in April. Stefan will be on hand at the Donate Life Colorado booth (booth 15) on Wednesday, April 3 and Thursday, April 4 from 5pm – 8pm to sign autographs and to meet with fans.
