ROCHESTER, Minn.- Those who have received organs, donated organs, and more gathered in Saint Mary's to honor those who have given the gift of life.
One young woman says she wouldn't have her grandfather today if it weren't for someone else donating to save his life. "You're saving someone's family member and a part of you is living through them."
She says the best way to help out is to make sure you are a registered organ donor and just educate yourself on the topic.
Usually the Walk of Remembrance starts at Saint Mary's Hospital and goes to The Gift of Life Transplant House, but because of the weather it was held inside.
Some were saying it was a blessing in disguise because some who are not allowed outside for medical reasons were able to be in attendance.
