Sam Wyche, former NFL coach and sports analyst, is one of seventeen transplant recipients from across the country chosen to ride on the 2018 Donate Life Float at the 129th Tournament of Roses Parade. He will also participate in handing out commemorative heart artwork to the donor families in attendance.

Wyche will be the fourth South Carolina organ recipient to be honored as a float rider in the fifteen years of the Donate Life Rose Parade Float program.

Bridge to Life is proud to make this opportunity possible through a co-sponsorship with LifeShare of The Carolinas and Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte.

Wyche received a heart transplant at Carolinas HealthCare System’s Carolinas Medical Center just over one year ago. Since his operation he is staying healthy and focusing on increasing awareness on the need for more organ, eye and tissue donors.
