Several members from our organization recently participated in the “2014 Transplant Games of America” in Houston, Tx on behalf of Team Ohio, the state in which our organization was founded. We enjoyed meeting and sharing stories with people from all across the country whose lives have been impacted by organ failure. We had fun competing in the different events and founder Edward Drake won the Gold Medal in High Jump with a record-breaking jump for the games!  YNOTT? would like to thank our key sponsors The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center and Nationwide Children’s Hospital for their contribution toward our efforts. We would also like to thank each individual who supported us by making a donation! We greatly appreciate your generosity.
