Donate Life Float at the Rose Parade
Date: Friday, January 01
Iowa Donor network is proud to be sending four participants to this year's Rose Parade Donate Life Float.
The Donate Life float honors millions of people touched by organ, eye and tissue donation, including living donors, donor families, transplant recipients and transplant candidates.
Iowa Donor Network CEO Suzanne Conrad, a living donor, will walk along side the float. A floragraph was made honoring donor Jesse Jorgensen which will be placed on the float. Jesse's parents John and Mary will travel to watch the parade.
Julie Durr is honoring her father Russ Gerdin by participating as a rider on this year’s float. Russ was a liver recipient and, along with his wife, set up Heartland Trucking.
Be sure to watch the action from 10am on New Year's Day.
