Each year, Donate Life America selects a theme to illustrate the beauty that organ, eye and tissue donation holds for the donor family, the recipient and those still awaiting lifesaving organs and tissue. For the 2019 National Donate Life Month theme, Donate Life America was inspired by bicycles and the phrase, “Life is a beautiful ride.” Like the donation and transplantation journey, a bicycle serves as a symbol of progress, renewal and the moving circle of life.

On Saturday, May 18, 2019, hundreds of transplant recipients, donor family members, healthcare professionals and donation advocates will gather at the historical Fort Worth Stockyards to run for the nearly 11,000 Texans waiting for a second chance during the Donate Life Texas 2nd Chance Run. LifeGift, the local organ and tissue donation agency and a Donate Life Texas organization, is hosting the event, which is now in its 17th year.
