Celebrating its 15th anniversary delivering the message of the power of organ, eye and tissue donation, the Donate Life Rose Parade Float took home a prestigious Tournament of Roses Parade Theme Award for exhibiting the most outstanding presentation of the Rose Parade theme of “Making a Difference”. Featuring over 14,000 roses and flowers from all around the world, as well as leaves, spices and other organic materials, the Donate Life Float themed “Gift of Time” raised awareness for the nearly 120,000 Americans waiting for a life-saving transplant. We were proud to have kidney recipient and Transplantation Science educator Jeff Leone representing us in this year’s parade!
