Isabelle died at the age of three waiting for a heart transplant. Her family started this annual golf tournament to help Gift of Life pursue its mission to provide support, awareness and success of organ, eye and tissue donation through education, mentoring and collaboration with partners and individuals in the transplant community.
2018 Life Savers Rally
The 16th annual Life Savers Rally kicked off the school year of organ, eye & tissue donation awareness for high school students.
- Talyor Givens & Collin Kobelja received heart transplants on the same day, fell in love and now they are getting married. They traveled from Washington DC to share their incredible story.
- Dr. Jennifer Heimes inspired the students as she shared her journey to become a heart transplant surgeon.
- Jamie Allen explained that watching her father on dialysis led to her decision to donate one of her kidneys to him. Her father, JD McConnell, expressed his gratitude to his daughter for her life saving gift.
- Donor spouse, Kari Driskell shared how “one moment” changed her family’s life forever, when her husband Coach Eric Driskell actually became organ donor.
Thanks to the support of our sponsors the Life Savers Rally is offered free of charge.
