UofL President James Ramsey accepted the “Gift of Life Challenge” trophy at the UofL-UK basketball game Jan. 2. The challenge is a friendly competition to see which university can get the most people to sign up as organ donors by joining the Kentucky Organ Donor Registry. More than 1.2 million Kentuckians have placed their names on the registry; 900 Kentuckians are awaiting a life-saving organ transplant.

This is the 11th year that UofL and UK supporters have gone head-to-head in the Donate Life Kentucky Coalition-sponsored contest. This is the third time that UofL has won the challenge.
