9th Annual LifePoint Race for Life

2/24/2014 (Permalink)

Awesome turn out at the Race for Life, Charleston SC!

SERVPRO of Greater Northern Charleston was so proud to see our 2014 pet project, LocalPassport.org, make their first appearance this weekend at LifePoint's 2014 Race for Life.   LifePoint creates awareness of the extreme need for increased organ donor registry and provides donor services to 62 hospitals in the state of South Carolina.  In addition, they educate hospital staff members and and helps families through the process of making a confident decision about organ donation during and extremely difficult and confusing time.

We also had the privilege of working side by side with Palmetto Crossfit owner , Alana Hopkins.   Alana has spent the last several years raising funds for a double lung transplant for her son, Tripp, with Cystic Fibrosis. Tripp did not find relief and healing in the way friends and family had hoped. However, his loving and vibrant spirit continues to live on and inspire so many.  The most notable are certainly his mother and sister.  They have not wavered in their fight to help those who need lifesaving transplants to have a better chance of living every single day.  As incredible as she is, Alana was only one of many in attendance this weekend that are pushing thru loss and putting their grief on display with the hope that more will choose to be organ donors.  If by now, you are wondering how you can register:  This link can help.

With almost 600 run/walk participants, a field full of vendors and even a few furry friends, the 9th Annual Race for Life was a huge success.  We met some awesome new people and thoroughly enjoyed the warm, beautiful weather!  A much needed change from the weeks of ice, freezing rain and frozen water pipes!  Needless to say, we walked out of the park Saturday with a heightened understanding of what we can accomplish as a community if we pull together. 

Every year more and more lives are saved due to new technology and medical procedures using donor organs. Localpassport.org worked tirelessly to help promote this event and increase participation. This is just the first of many events they will support and we are thrilled to be their 2014 calendar sponsor!
