The Bryan Clauson Chasing 200 Tour Continues with a New Goal of Saving Lives
Inspired by Bryan's generosity, his family is continuing The Chasing 200 Tour with a new goal in mind—to register 200 organ and tissue donor in Bryan's memory.
"This has been such a bittersweet moment for our family," said Tim Clauson, father of Bryan Clauson. "We miss our son terribly. However, what has kept us going is the outpouring of support from the community and Bryan's decision to be an organ donor. We have always been proud of him for the generous person he was. Being a donor saves lives and gives us hope to see Bryan continue to live on in the lives he has helped."
Bryan's fans will have the opportunity to register in person at the Celebration of Life honoring him Wednesday at Kokomo Speedway. Individuals can also register online at http://www.registerme.org/
Each donor has the potential to save eight lives and heal 60 others. If the Chasing 200 goal is reached, up to 1,600 lives could be saved.
"Over 120,000 Americans are waiting for a life-saving transplant,"
"We have been overwhelmed by the support for Bryan and all those that have already committed to donating in his honor," Neal continued. "It's a true testament to who Bryan was and the impact he had on all who knew him."
"Everybody we met from the Nebraska Organ Recovery treated us with so much compassion and appreciation,"
The Bryan Clauson Celebration of Life begins at 1 pm at the Kokomo Speedway. Hot Laps start at 6:30, and the Tim Duggar concert will begin right after the completion of the night's races.
