Events and Observances
For National Donate Life Month last month, Colorado and Wyoming joined celebrations across the country to help encourage residents in both states to register as organ, eye and tissue donors and to honor those that have saved lives through the gift of donation.
Trees were planted and dedicated across the two-state area by transplant recipients honoring their donors, living donors celebrating the life of their recipients and families of donors memorializing their loved ones who gave the gift of life.
Colorado and Wyoming residents and businesses were also invited to join in on the month’s celebrations on National Blue & Green Day, Friday, April 15. Many local news anchors joined residents and organizations across the region in wearing blue or green to promote the success of organ, eye and tissue transplantation and the need for registered donors.
Thank you to those who planted and dedicated trees last month, and to all of the Colorado and Wyoming residents and organizations that helped make National Donate Life Month 2016 a huge success!
