DONATE LIFE ORGAN DONATION AWARENESS-OHIO STATE'S 2010 PLAZA PINWHEELS FOR ORGAN AND TISSUE DONATION

video

For more than 40 years, The Ohio State University Medical Center has been dedicated to providing lifesaving transplants to those in need. This year's event was even more inspiring due to the shear number of pinwheels and the the countless lives saved.

Through this pinwheel garden, we honor those who have given the gift of life and those who have received a second chance at life through transplantation. Each of these 7,000 pinwheels represents an organ and tissue donation performed at Ohio State.

You, too, can give the Gift of Life by registering to be an organ, eye and tissue donor by visiting Donate life Ohio
