Team Addison at the 2014 Transplant Trot!

Transplant Trot 2014-04-13 10-40-38

The only disappointment at today’s third annual Transplant Trot was our missed meeting with Sidney the Kidney. Apparently Sidney was very busy helping with race stuff so we didn’t get a chance to see him and give him a hug. Addison was very sad but we placated her with the proimse we’d see him again next year.

This year, the Princess was asked to present the youth award to Robbie Thompson from Comox. He’s had two heart transplants in his young life and he is a huge advocate for organ donation awareness. We practised handing over the medal last night and it was an (almost) flawless performance this morning.

We were also excited to see the debut of BC Transplant’s new ad campaign. Addison is one of this year’s poster girls and we are pleased there is a focus on pediatric transplant. Up until now, all the promotional materials only featured adult recipients and donors. Aaron and I were hoping they’d choose a picture featuring just our little superstar, but no, it didn’t work out that way. Apparently we are going to be on the side of a bus too!

Thank you again to our amazing friends, coworkers and family who were part of Team Addison this year. Together we can help register even more people as organ donors.
