Mountains and Transplants: A Good Parallel

Climbers carry the Chain of Life flag to great heights!


Waiting for a transplant is a bit like climbing a mountain. Both require preparation, fortitude, determination, perseverance and most importantly, solid support—the climber needs strong rope partners and the person waiting for an organ transplant needs a reliable support network. Both challenges are very real.

This is of sorts why the mountain has become a symbol of Chain of Life.

By planting the Chain of Life flag at the top of a mountain, you are showing solidarity for the cause of organ and tissue donation and contributing to the visibility of Chain of Life.

Upon returning from your expedition, send us a photo taken at the top with the flag to share on our site.
