Trails4Transplants (T4T) is a group that takes long-distance trail rides to raise awareness about organ, eye and tissue donation. They kicked off their 2018 ride, titled 10,000 Reasons to Donate, at Tri-County Health Care’s Garden of Hope in Wadena on May 21.
The group arrived at the Wadena County Fairgrounds on Saturday, May 19, before being treated to a special dinner by Tri-County Health Care. The evening provided an opportunity for those touched by organ donation to share their stories. T4T member Sally Jacobson shared her story of receiving a liver. Bill Barbknecht talked about donating a kidney to his wife, Carol, in 2013. Jennifer Lamblez with Lions Gift of Sight shared stories of eye donation. Lois Miller, Tri-County Health Care organ donation project lead, shared the story of Stephanie Larson, who received a heart donation. . . .
