Because maybe when someone sees a picture of them together on social media and realizes her father, Harold Strope, is pedaling up the Berkshires with a heart he wasn’t born with, they’ll sign up to be an organ donor.

Their four-day ride will start in Delmar, the place Harold and Miriam Strope call home, and end at Massachusetts General Hospital, where Harold received a heart transplant 20 years ago, when he was in his late 40s and Sara was a senior at Albany Academy for Girls. They hope to raise a bit of money for the hospital, but the primary purpose of the ride is to raise awareness about the importance of signing up to be an organ donor. It’s as easy as checking a box when you get your driver’s license or signing up online. Read more here.

    My chile-hood sawbones told me at age 14 that myrctcooles were the ork of God. He loved ’em. He was also instrumental in procuring donatable organs, most of which were harvested from motorcycle accident participants. He refused to call ’em victims as the lion’s sharee got to his operating table by active participation. Nearly all the spare parts were from healthy young males. He decried the fact that the part most often damaged beyond repair was usually the head, and those had barely been used. If they had been, he’d have had far fewer bits to sew into folks for repairs. He convinced me to travel on four wheels and at moderate speeds. I mght have arrived an hour or so later, but I arrived in one undamaged piece. Same for my Wife and my Kids.
