Transplant Games flag stopping at UK HealthCare
The Transplant Games of America’s National Flag Tour will stop at UK HealthCare on Thursday to celebrate organ donors and recipients on its way to the 2016 Games in June.
Prior to the games, the official flags of the event travel across the country to help raise awareness of organ donation. The flags are also signed by the members of each state’s team. Members of Team Kentucky will be present to sign the flag this Thursday.
Karen Michul, a UK HealthCare employee and living kidney donor, will be participating in the Games for the second time this year, competing in several bowling events.
“Seeing the camaraderie of the donor families and recipients at the Games is amazing,” Michul said. “And some of these people are meeting for the first time! It’s an emotional ride.”
The flag will be on display and available for Team Kentucky to sign this Thursday at 10 a.m. inside the atrium of UK Albert B. Chandler Hospital Pavilion A. If you’re planning to attend, we encourage you to wear blue and green, the colors of Donate Life. Following the flag-signing and a few short remarks, you’re also welcome to stay a short photo session to celebrate the gift of life.
