In 2012 the Tarrant family lost their 17-year-old son, Cory Tarrant, in a fatal dirt bike crash, and have used the incident to raise money for and awareness about organ donation.

Once again the Tarrant family is participating in the annual Donate Life Run/Walk Family Festival. 
The event is “a non-competitive 5K/1K run/walk to educate and inspire the community about organ and tissue donation while benefiting the OneLegacy Foundation,” according to event officials.
The walk takes on a personal meaning for the Tarrant family after their son elected to be an organ donor before his death.
Cory Tarrant was honored in the 2015 Rose Parade with a portrait on the Donate Life Rose Parade float for his donation and the work of his family after his death to raise awareness on the importance of organ donation.
Nearly 18 people die each day waiting for a lifesaving organ to be donated, according to organizers.
The Donate Life Run looks to help reduce that number by inspiring others to become organ donors and research new advanced ways to transplant organs and tissues. Continue reading
