Organ and Tissue Donor Awareness Ride
Trails4Transplants is a charity ride that takes horse and rider from Warren, MN to St. Anthony, ND, a total of 311 miles.
We ride for a noble cause. We are raising awareness for organ and tissue donation. Proceeds will go to the Gift of Life Transplant House in Rochester, MN, which is a facility where organ recipients and their families can stay at a reduced cost while awaiting or following a life-saving organ or tissue transplant.
We ride for our loved ones.
“My brother, Blake Johnson, died of a head injury sustained from an automobile accident on June 11, 2000 at the age of 19. Our family was asked to consider organ donation. We noticed he had indicated on his driver’s license that he would be an organ donor, so we knew it was what he would have wanted. Blake was the 19th organ donor from North Dakota that year. His gift of his heart, liver, kidneys, and pancreas saved four lives. In 2011, our family met his heart recipient for the first time and were given the opportunity to listen to his heart with a stethoscope 11 years after his death. Blake’s legacy will continue through his decision to be an organ donor.”
-Ashley Peterson, Co-chair & Rider
“My son-in-law, Dave, received a liver transplant in 1998 when he was 26 years old. He went on to marry my daughter and have two children. Without the gift of organ donation, I would not have my precious grandchildren.”
-Roger Hille, Co-chair & Rider
