The Paul Kennedy Team
This is the 14th consecutive year for the Paul Kennedy Team to enter a team in the Ottawa Race Weekend.
The Paul Kennedy Team was created to honour an incredible young man while promoting his gift to others – Paul donated eight of his of organ and tissues to eight individuals. There are approximately 4,000 Canadians waiting for the gift of life – many of which await a heart, liver, lungs, kidney or small bowel transplant, etc. Nearly one- third of those awaiting these major organs will die, without a second chance at life.
The Main Focus of Paul's Team is to raise awareness for the urgent need of organ and tissue donation in Canada, and throughout the world. To think of others and donate one’s organs and/or tissues is truly a compassionate and selfless act. Please join with us and "Open your Heart to Organ and Tissue Donation".
