I don't know if many NW parents are aware or not, but Rod Allen, assistant coach on the GRFBL North showcase team, had a heart and kidney transplant several years ago. Rod spent nearly a year in hospitals in Raleigh and Chapel Hill waiting for donor organs, so he, more than anyone, knows how important organ donorship can be.
Rod has two sons that came through the North Wake program and both went on to play college baseball. Rod has coached at all levels within NW, including our summer collegiate team. Additionally, he was instrumental in bringing several of our key youth fields on line when he worked on the facilities committee for the board. Rod has consistently raised funds in support of the NW and is one of the strongest supporters of the our Greater Raleigh Fall Baseball program.
Rod has asked that NW support the organ donor effort by providing information and web links on our site. Please join Rod in learning more about the organ donor effort.
