On May 3rd, 2017 the Moorhead, MN Rasmussen College Nursing Club hosted a blood drive in Zach’s honor. During the six-hour blood drive event in collaboration with the American Red Cross, the organization was able to collect 27 units of blood, which can potentially help up to 81 patients in need! Zach was everyone’s friend and always wanted to help others and this was an amazing tribute to honor Zach’s legacy-Thank you Rasmussen Nursing Club !
In November 2016 Team Zach held a teddy bear drive in Zach’s memory. We set a goal of 50 new bears to give to children facing serious medical illness in the community. With the support of our community, Westside Elementary (where Zach attended grade school), our church and Kay Jewelers we collected over 450 brand new bears to distribute to children in the community and surrounding area! Church groups also distributed some of the bears to kids in need.
