It's my pleasure to post this request from Team USA in the hope of spreading the word to support Team USA athletes in Vancouver this February.
On February 12, the world will gather to watch top athletes from around the globe compete in the Winter Olympic Games in Vancouver. Athletes from Team USA, who have been training their entire lives will take the stage to represent our country. I'm writing with the hope that you could share the news about Team USA with the readers of Merv Sheppard's Transplant Network.
Anyone who registers on Teamusa.org will have access to the latest info and will receive exclusive updates throughout the games. I've put all that information including some very cool Team USA widgets and banners into this social media news release here:
Please let me know if you are able to post or tweet and if you could send me the link that would be fantastic. By spreading the word we can all help support our Team USA athletes bring home the gold.
Thank you so much,
