Sportswear that supports Organ Donation Awareness

Mike Kolatschek’s brother Rob is a liver transplant recipient whose life was transformed to the point where he could resume high-level athletic activities. I checked with Trillium Gift of Life Network and they are very supportive of this initiative to raise organ donation awareness and I’m pleased to support Trans-Sport Canada’s efforts by posting this announcement. This could be a great gift item. (P.S. - Since posting this I received a couple of the short sleeved T-Shirts as a gift from my daughter for my birthday. They're great!) Merv.

It's that time of year - Fall - perfect for those long morning strolls with loved ones or mid afternoon runs along the water with friends. To make your time outside even more meaningful, why not show your support for organ donation by wearing a Geckorunners long sleeved top or cap.

This cool swag was developed to create a sense of support for the cause and tribute to donor families, for a small donation of $20. Send us a picture of you wearing the Gecko gear and we’ll post it on our website.

Interested in two or more items? We’ll cover the shipping costs! Wear the gear proudly, believing that everyone deserves a second chance at life.

Thanks for your support.
