  • 4. Online Organ and Tissue Donor Registration Your decision to register now could one day save up to eight lives and enhance as many as 75 more. If you are 16 years of age or older and have a valid Ontario Health Number, you can register your consent online to become an organ and tissue donor. By registering your consent, information about your donation decision will be available and accessible should it ever be required. When you register your consent to donate organs and tissue, your donation decision is recorded in a Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care database. In the event of your death or imminent death, when all life-saving efforts have failed, your donation decision will be disclosed for the purpose of sharing this information with your family so that they can honour your wishes. You need to register even if you signed a donor card. A signed donor card is not recorded in the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care’s database and may not be available when needed. Organ and tissue donor registration is the only secure and guaranteed way to make your decision to save lives known.

  • 6. The Torch Of Life: The Legacy June 13 2000 -The Torch Of Life Appears The Torch Of Life mysteriously arrives at Step By Step’s doorstep of their office at 170 Lauder Ave in Toronto. June 20 2000 – 2002 Canada 769 Day Walk George Marcello, began a 12,000 km walk across Canada, thanking his anonymous donor family, carrying this beautiful Torch. On September 5, 2001, George was invited to bring the Torch to Vatican City, where Pope John Paul ll blessed it. The Pope proclaimed that Organ & Tissue donations was a genuine act of love and wisely encouraged the kids to carry the Torch. He said the youth would inspire the World. Afterwards thousands turned to millions of Torch Bearers and the legacy grew. January 2004 – Kristopher’s Wish George passed the Torch to 13 year old Kristopher Knowles in his hometown of Sarnia. Kris was in need of a liver transplant and carried the Torch across Canada. Like a modern day pied piper, Kris recruited hundreds of thousands of kids as he talked to them about his wish, to help save over 4,000 people waiting for organs and not worrying about his own life. October 1 2007-2008 SOS4000 Canada Student Torch Relay Kristopher passed the Torch to his army of students, who relayed the Torch throughout Canada these amazing kids set an example for other countries to follow. October 23 2009-2010 SOSTHEAMERICAS USA / Canada Student Torch Relay This time the Torch began in Alaska and went through Canada, entering the USA via Maine. The Torch went through 13 States before finishing in Washington DC at the Pope John Paul ll Cultural Center on April 14 2010. October 31 2011 – Donor Dads in memory of Nicholas & Ahmed sparks Ontario Tour 2 famous Donor Dads, were brought to Toronto, to carry the Torch in memory of their sons Nicholas & Ahmed. In 1994, Reg Green lost his 7 year old son while vacationing in Italy, due to a botched robbery . He donated Nicholas’s organs to 7 Italian kids. Ismael Khatib lost his 11 year old boy In Jenin Palestine, due to mistaken shot by an Israeli Soldier. He donated Ahmed’s organs to 5 Israeli kids. Ahmed’s brother Khaled will join Kristopher Knowles throughout the entire 110 day Ontario Tour. They will urge The students of Ontario to lead way to inspire the public to register as organ donors. Hopefully one day nobody needs to die waiting for an organ/tissue transplant. Step By Step is a registered Charity dedicated to promote organ & tissue donations.

  • 37. To our Sponsors &Supporters: Since the inception of Step By Step in 1996, the founder & the inspiration, George Marcello has literally devoted every minute of his life trying to help people that are in desperate need of organ & tissue donations. As it has been said, he didn’t know how to sing or dance, and after receiving his life saving liver transplant in 1995, he wanted to thank his anonymous donor by walking across Canada. As a result of 7 more campaigns & 50 million steps later, George has guided Step By Step to receive international attention. His passion & actions speak louder than words. Step By Step & the Torch Of Life have become a brand. As a result of 15 years, of boots on the ground activities, Step By Step has amassed supporters worldwide. The famous Torch Of Life has become our cherished symbol and the kids that carry it have become our ambassadors. After blessing the Torch, Pope John Paul 2, and many other distinguished people have all echoed that our children can change the world. In our latest campaign, Register Now Ontario Student Torch Relay, we are determined to reach an ambitious goal; register over a million Ontarians. Many times over the years, George has set his sights high. When he said he was going to convince Premier Harris to allocate over million dollars, he did it. When he said he was going to walk across Canada and meet the Pope, he did it. When he said, he was going to bring a 13 year old boy who needed a liver transplant across Canada, he did it. When he said he was going to organize thousands of kids to relay the Torch from Canada To USA he did it. When he said he was going to bring 2 of the world’s most famous organ dads to Toronto, he did it. So now he says that Step By Step’s army of kids in Ontario will inspire the Province to register over a million people, they will do it. He always worked with barely no budget, and completed things. Lets make it a little more comfortable for him this time around. Join us by contributing at the beginning. We all know George deserves it. Lets get behind him and let him do what he does best organize & save lives. Step By Step is a registered Charity dedicated to promote organ & tissue donations.

    • The province is directing the transplant medical staff by empowering them to provide an extra option to individuals that find themselves on the waiting list. That option is that they could be put on a Provincial Website or if they qualify, be put on the Alert

  • 61. To our cherised supporters: Since the inception of Step By Step in 1996, the founder & the inspiration George Marcello has literally devoted every minute of his life trying to help people that are in desperate need of organ & tissue donations. He didn’t know how to sing or dance, and after receiving his life saving liver transplant in 1995, he wanted to thank his anonymous donor by walking across Canada. As a result of 7 more campaigns & 50 million steps later, George has guided Step By Step to receive international attention. His passion & integrity speak louder than words. Step By Step & the Torch Of Life have become a brand. As a result of 15 years, of boots on the ground activities, Step By Step has amassed supporters worldwide. The famous Torch Of Life has become our cherished symbol and the kids that carry it have become our ambassadors. After blessing the Torch, Pope John Paul 2, and many other distinguished people have all echoed that our children can change the world. In our latest campaign, Register Now Ontario Student Torch Relay, we are determined to reach an ambitious goal; register over a million Ontarians. Many times over the years, George has set his sights high. When he said he was going to convince Premier Harris to allocate over million dollars, he did it. When he said he was going to walk across Canada and meet the Pope, he did it. When he said, he was going to bring a 13 year old boy who needed a liver transplant across Canada, he did it. When he said he was going to organize thousands of kids to relay the Torch from Canada To USA he did it. When he said he was going to bring 2 of the world’s famous organ dads in the world to Toronto, he did it. So now he says that Step By Step’s army of kids in Ontario will inspire the Province to register over a million people, they will do it. He always worked with barely no budget, and completed things. Lets make it a little more comfortable for him this time around. Join us by contributing at the beginning. We all know George deserves it. Lets get behind him and let him do what he does best organize & save lives.
