Sign up to become an organ donor
We’re all for making registering as simple as possible because so many lives could be saved if more people agreed to donate. See how easy it is.
Every April during 'Donate Life Month' transplant recipients and volunteers from Ohio State's Comprehensive Transplant Center and Lifeline of Ohio plant a pinwheel garden on the front plaza of the Ohio State Wexner Medical Center.
In 2019, 9,700 pinwheels will be planted, each representing a lifesaving transplant performed at Ohio State since 1967.
Each pinwheel has eight spokes supported by one stem, symbolic of the power of one person to save up to eight lives through organ donation and the gift of life!
Nearly 10,000 pinwheels will be planted during our 2019 event!
