Jefferson Award Winner: Ted and Shelby Gerbig

Posted:

Our Jefferson Award for the month of July is awarded to Ted and Shelby Gerbig of Schofield.

Over the years, we have followed this dynamic duo and their efforts to increase awareness about organ and tissue donations.

In 2003, Ted underwent a successful lung transplant.

Following his surgery, he and Shelby decided they wanted to pay-it-forward and founded North Central Wisconsin Donate Life.

They have volunteered countless hours promoting organ donation and YesIWillWisconsin, the online donor registry.

The non-profit NCWDL holds an annual fundraiser called the Donate Life Scavenger Hunt.

It has awarded $50,000 in grants to promote organ donation.
