Colorado & Wyoming Residents 'Show Their Hearts' At Local National Donate Life Month Celebrations In April


Registered organ, eye and tissue donors are invited to paint a heart on NASCAR driver Joey Gase's car

DENVER, March 30, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- This April, in celebration of National Donate Life Month, Donor Alliance, the federally designated nonprofit that facilities organ and tissue donation in Colorado and most of Wyoming, invites Colorado and Wyoming residents to 'show their hearts' at a series of celebrations throughout the month of April. Activities will include meet-and-greet events with NASCAR driver Joey Gase, whose mother was an organ, eye and tissue donor, and a week of discounts from local businesses for residents who show the hearts on their licenses or wear blue and green in celebration of National Donate Life Month.

Joey Gase—a professional race car driver for the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series and the NASCAR Xfinity Series—lost his mother, Mary, to a sudden brain aneurysm when he was just 18 years old. Because of Joey's courageous decision to donate her organs, Mary was able to save and heal the lives of 66 people through organ, eye and tissue donation. This experience inspired Joey and he has since become a passionate advocate for donation. Joey will be at the Cheyenne, WY Old Chicago (1734 Meadowland Dr.) on April 3 from 5-7 p.m. and at the Denver Auto Show on April 5. At both locations, visitors can show the hearts on their driver license for the chance to meet Joey and paint a heart on his official race car. Continue reading
