Columbia Rotary South GOAL: To do all that we can do to support this really important mission.

Our interest in working with MWTN began with the late Tom Thomas, our club’s charter president and recipient of a donated heart at St. Luke’s. Tom was an MWTN Ambassador when he died.

Columbia Rotary South has carried the local education and awareness effort forward since Tom died in 2016. We had a great turnout in 2018—in honor of Tom, let’s magnify our effort in 2019!!

Further, Mizzou Sports Network will be featuring organ donation awareness.
