The annual DMV Appreciation Week aims to celebrate and honor the hard work of the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMVs), administrators and licensing partners across the nation for their partnership and commitment to educating and registering each customer as an organ, eye and tissue donor.
In Wyoming, 59% of those with a drivers license or state ID say “Yes” at Driver Services to organ, eye and tissue donation. Wyoming consistently ranks in the top ten among all states for the highest donor designation rate. Learn more about what it means to be an organ, eye and tissue donor at this event or online here.
Joining the celebration this year is IndyCar driver and recent Indy 500 15th Place Finisher, Stefan Wilson, who is a spokesperson for organ, eye and tissue donation. The brother of a donor, Stefan is a passionate advocate for the cause. Stefan was touched by donation when his older brother Justin died tragically in a racing accident in 2015. Justin was a registered organ, eye and tissue donor and was able to save five lives through donation.
Hoping to inspire and encourage all Wyoming residents to sign up to become organ, eye and tissue donors at the time of their death, Stefan will share his story with attendees. Stefan will show his appreciation for the efforts of DMV staff, sign autographs, pose for pictures and meet with the public. The event will take place on September 28, 2018 from 1:00pm – 3:00pm at the Cheyenne Driver Services office.
