Helena, MT- July 6, 2015—On Friday, July 10, Governor Steve Bullock will honor all of those who gave the Gift of Life in 2014 in Montana at the Capitol Building. The Gift of Life Award is hosted by LifeCenter Northwest and the Governor’s Office of Community Service.

Last year, 30 individuals throughout the state became organ donors. Families of many of these donors will have an opportunity to add a message about their loved one on roses provided for them and place it into a vase next to the podium at the event. At the podium, Governor Steve Bullock will read the names of those receiving the “Gift of Life Award”.

The final, generous act of these Montanans saved 113 lives.

“While these families have suffered a tremendous loss, I hope they can take some comfort in knowing that their loved ones have given the ultimate gift to others,” said Governor Steve Bullock. “By giving the gift of life, they have served our community. It is my privilege to honor them for this outstanding service.”

“These donors, and their families, are truly heroes,” says LifeCenter CEO Kevin O’Connor. “Their legacy lives on through the lives they saved, and we look forward to the opportunity to honor these courageous individuals alongside Governor Bullock.” Continue reading
