A flag raised Monday, April 15, 2019, at Mayo Clinic Health System in Red Wing serves as a visual reminder of the impact one person can make when they register to be an organ donor.
A single donor can help up to 75 people, according to Life Source, a nonprofit organ donation organization serving Minnesota, portions of western Wisconsin and the Dakotas.
Mayo Clinic Health System staff gathered for an inaugural ceremony in Red Wing to raise a "Donate Life" flag at the medical center. The event coincided with National Donate Life Month in April.
