Team North Carolina

These are a few shots of the U.S. Transplant Games in Pittsburg, PA, July, 2008. The top photo is Jim, standing in front of a banner for the Games, which is a picture of him from the 2006 Games. He had me paint "Thanks Sis" on his chest, with an image of a kidney before he swam his events in the 2006 Games. Unbeknownst to us, they used that on several of the different banners for this year's games. What a cool surprise! The second shot is of Team North Carolina at the closing ceremonies. You can see the thousands of people in the background. Quite a moving and inspirational event, with many tales of immense physical barriers that people have overcome.
