Donate Life Float: 2016 Floragraph Honoree - Kevin Yates

Donate Life Float

On July 31, 2011, Kevin Daniel “Sunshine” Yates was on his way home from work. As he traveled on Highway 153 in Chattanooga, TN, he was hit by a drunk driver who was traveling north in the southbound lane divided by a concrete-barrier. Kevin died 31 hours later, and gave the most selfless gifts in the end. Kevin was able to save the lives of four people with his liver, kidneys, pancreas, and heart and enhance the lives of countless others with his tissue and bone donation. More than that, Kevin’s mother and brother started a nonprofit called 1N3 to educate people on the dangers of driving while drunk. Kevin’s drunk driver now serves as a spokesperson for the organization and over 3 million people have been touched by Kevin’s story, the dangers of drunk driving and the healing power of organ donation.
