Wow. Honestly, it’s about all I can think of to say about the amazing experience I just took part in this week. Wow. For all of you who were there, all 6,000 of you — the 1,500 athletes, the 159 living organ donors, the thousands of you who came in honor and remembrance of your loved ones who gave the gift of life, the families and friends who came to cheer on their atheletes — I just want to say thanks for making these Transplant Games the event that they are. I will never forget this week!
Many of you might be seeing this blog and hearing about the Greatest Gift Foundation for the first time. I encourage you to check out the “About,” “My Story,” and “Greatest Gift Foundation” tabs up above, and to contact me any time through comments or through email if you’d like to get in touch. I’d love to hear from you no matter what it is you have to sound off about!

Thankfully, after all that excitement, I don’t have to hustle back to work. Instead, some friends and I are hiking a 14,000-foot peak in the Colorado Rockies this weekend. A blissful way to end a blissful week. I’ll post from Denver tomorrow and Friday.
