In this week’s Heart of the Midstate, we’re remembering a child organ donor, Noah Asid, whose donations went on to save the lives of 4 people.
When Noah was at a nature camp 10 years ago a tree fell and he pushed a little girl out of the way, taking the brunt of the injuries. The little girl escaped with minor injuries but Noah was brain dead from the incident. His parents decided to donate his organs and were able to save four people with his donations. His legacy is living on with a ride happening this weekend.
Noah’s 7th Annual Living Legacy Ride is taking place this Saturday, August 17th at the Hanover Fraternal Order of Eagles #1406. The address is 105 Park Street in Hanover, PA. Registration will take place between 9:00 am-11:00 am. The cost is $10.00 a vehicle and $5.00 a passenger. All vehicles are welcomed.
A breakfast buffet will be available from 8:00 am-11:00 am. All proceeds go to The Living Legacy Foundation. Last year the group raised more than $18,000 and they hope to do even better this year.
Organizers say you can participate by sending a monetary donation that will be matched dollar for dollar by the Hanover Eagles. Make the check payable to the Hanover Fraternal Order of Eagles #1406, with Noah’s Ride written on the MEMO line. The address is 105 Park Street in Hanover, PA.
