At the centerpiece of the park is a donor memorial monument – a bronze, bas-relief sculpture created in 2009 by Chesterfield sculptor Don Wiegand. The piece depicts transplant recipients raising lit candles in lasting tribute to their donors. The sculpture is backed by large blocks of stone and marble and surrounded by a serene reflecting pool.
MTS President & CEO Dean F. Kappel, a Chesterfield resident, said the monument “honors the selfless act of giving life to another through organ and tissue donation.”
