Posted 22 mins ago
Supporters of organ and tissue donation will gather in Niagara Falls Friday to raise awareness for the Trillium Gift of Life in honour of national organ and tissue donation awareness week.
Donor families and transplant recipients will take part and Trillium staff will be on hand.
Niagara Falls will be illuminated in green from 9 p.m. to 9:15 p.m. and again at 10 p.m. until 10:15 p.m.
At 10:00 p.m., to coincide with the second illumination of the falls, Canadian and American participants will form a symbolic living green ribbon across the Rainbow Bridge. Participants will be wearing green ponchos and holding green glow sticks in honour of organ and tissue donation.
