If you would like a tribute sign of your loved one included in our Garden of Heroes, please email a high resolution photo with the name as you would like it to appear to tzobrist@midamericatransplant.org by September 13th, 2019. Any photos received after this date will not be included in the Garden of Heroes. Please note: If you had a Garden of Heroes sign created last year, you will need to submit a new photo for this year’s Garden of Heroes.

Mid-America Transplant is focused on strengthening our communities by not only serving as the link between patients awaiting organ and tissue transplants and those who donate, but also as a community based resource providing education and bereavement support. The Celebrate Life 5K brings together the St. Louis transplant community to honor organ and tissue donors, celebrate new life with recipients, support those waiting for a lifesaving transplant, and inspire others to say “yes” to donation.We are excited to raise awareness about organ, tissue, and eye donation.
