Darren, one of our House Heroes, received a liver transplant in 2011. Below Shauna Rivait, Regional Marketing & Development Coordinator at the Canadian Liver Foundation in Alberta, shares one of Darren’s most recent accomplishments:
I wanted to share that Darren Loutit (grade 7) was in Calgary and participated in the Canadian Liver Foundation’s GIVE’R for LIVER team in the Calgary Marathon! Darren speed walked his first ever half marathon (21.1km) and finished with a smile on his face well within the required time! As you know, Darren is a liver transplant recipient and I know him from when he participated in the 2012 Transplant Games in Calgary. Darren has also attended several events for the Canadian Transplant Association and the Canadian Liver Foundation.
Congratulations on your run, Darren, and for all you’ve done for liver disease research!
