The Urso family has decided to have Kirk’s legacy live on off the field, by giving the gift of tissue. Columbus Crew sponsor Lifeline of Ohio, the local nonprofit that promotes and coordinates organ and tissue donation, is giving fans an opportunity to honor Kirk's gift at upcoming games.
Statement from Lifeline of Ohio:
Kirk Urso was truly a hero on and off the field. He not only touched lives as a member of the Columbus Crew, but he will continue to impact others through his gift of tissue donation. Help us honor Kirk's legacy as a tissue donor by wearing a green Donate Life bracelet. Stop by the Donate Life booth before any Columbus Crew home game to pick up your free bracelet and honor our hero, Kirk Urso.
Stop by the Donate Life booth on the Crew Kicker Plaza before the game on Wednesday to pick up one of 4,000 green Donate Life bracelets to support Kirk's gift of life.
