TRIO 25th Anniversary Picnic August 12, 2012


August, 2012 marks the 25th anniversary of TRIO. We celebrated the anniversary as part of this year's annual Celebration of Life Picnic.  We gathered on August 12th at the John Torok Community & Senior Center.  

TRIO provided the hot dogs thanks to Vicki from Sugardale/Freshmark Meats (since 1992) and Schwebel's Baking for the hot dog buns.    Thanks to our sponsors!


We had wonderful weather and 23 adults and 7 children attended this years gathering.  Thank you to everyone for joining us at the picnic.  Thank you to Mary Fread for providing a NEW grill and cooking our hot dogs.  

Lifebanc's 2012 Gift of Life Walk & Run

This year's Lifebanc Gift of Life Walk & Run took place on August 11, 2012 at Blossom Music Center.  Akron Canton TRIO had two teams sponsored by TRIO members in this year's Walk & Run.

Team Race for Amanda


This year was extra special for our team because not only is my family a recipient family because of my 8/31/10 liver transplant, but with my uncle's tragic death less than a week prior to this year's event, we became a donor family as well. We were able to walk in honor of my donor and in honor of my uncle and all the lives he saved and healed by being an organ and tissue donor.   We had a large team and many people who could not attend mailed in generous checks - we were so grateful.  Thank you to my teammates and sponsors for their participation and support.  - Amanda Goodwin  

Team Kidney Kats


We’re glad to report that team "Kidney Kats" had a phenomenal inaugural year!  We set a rather lofty goal of $1,000.00.  Thanks to the generosity of some very wonderful donors, we were able to double it!  Wow!!!!  The day of the walk dawned cool and rainy, quite unexpected since our summer has been unusually hot and dry, but that didn't dampen the spirits of this team!  Our fourteen member team consisted of Jacqui Scolaro and her two granddaughters, Morgan & Victoria, Jacqui's mom, Hailey Golden, Mary Fread, Holley Karamas, Sandra and Dave Tipton, Jo Price, Toni Price, Melva Strong, and Pat Summers and Rosie Price - team captains.  We made a strong debut in this event, but wait till next year!  We have bigger and better things planned!  This event is always a very positive and moving event for all those who participate.  We’re glad that we were able to get some new people to become a part of this experience.  - Rosie Price and Pat Summers
