Donate Life 5k Walk/Run to Celebrate Scott Davis

Donate Life TriLaVie Team Annual Event: 5k Walk/Run is an event attended by thousands to honor those who donated organs and recipients who enjoy life because of it.

 

Donate Life 5k Walk/Run at Cal State Fullerton

One of our most treasured events is the Donate Life 5k Walk/Run IMG_1410April 30th at Cal State Fullerton. It is more of an “event” than a race.  It is a spectacular gathering of family members of people who donated organs as well as recipients.  Between the Davis family, friends and TLV members, Team DAVIS is usually the largest group at the event – and the event hosts THOUSANDS.

For us, it is bitter sweet gathering that serves as a celebration of Scott Davis’s life – his short but full life – and of the lives he supported with the donation of 5 of his organs so that others could thrive.  (see below for details and article about Scott). I’ve brought my family to this event, and it is the most memorable experience my daughters have.  They are moved by stories of the donor recipients, entertained by the presentations on the stage, and feel part of something so big and important. And.. well… they like the expo with games and freebies as well as the celebrity sightings.  They are teenagers after all!  But the message of the morning – to treasure life, donate organs and celebrate SCOTT are not lost on them.

DETAILS FROM MINDY DAVIS (Scott's Mom):

It's that time again to join our family on Saturday April 30th at the Donate Life Walk/Run to honor Scott and support organ donation.  Bill and I will host Uncle Larry's fish tacos at our house afterwards. 

Please join us in this meaningful event and help us be the largest team for the 8th year!Scott Davis Donate Life

Come and be a part of history! Donate life will be attempting to set a Guinness Book World Record for the most organ transplant recipients.  

At this time I think the 3 recipients of Scott's organ recipients we have met will be part of the team.

Long before I met our esteemed teammate Mindy and her husband (our TriAngel) Bill, I've been adamant about proper and consistent helmet wearing. You can imagine my horror after learning that their young son died in a skateboarding accident.

Scott Davis was 19 years old and home for college vacation when he was out skateboarding in Newport. He was a wonderful young man and a fabulous athlete, specializing in wrestling.  There is now a tournament in his honor at Scott's Alma Mater - Mater Dei High School.

Here is the link to an article about Scott.

While this is upsetting for all of us, I did want to share their story as well as pass on a wonderful event that honors Scott’s life and the organs that were donated so that others would have life.
