Wayne Smith, TiCats and Nancy Hemrica, Trillium Gift of Life Network
Hamilton, Ontario - October 17th, 2006.
Wayne Smith, offensive tackle for the Hamilton Tiger Cats of the Canadian Football League finished his daily practice and rushed over to the Hamilton Health Sciences hospital (McMaster division) to help us promote organ and tissue donation awareness.
Wayne signed autographs, handed out donor cards and green ribbons and was very friendly with the public.
His generosity is typical of the wonderful support that Hamilton Tiger Cats have given to organ donation awareness over the years.
In addition to Wayne and the Tiger Cats Football Club, thanks should also go to Nancy Hemrica, TGLN* Organ & Tissue Donation Coordinator, Brian Kellow, TGLN Community Relations and Carly Baxter, Hamilton Health Sciences Public Relations who supported and coordinated this initiative.
