Ryan, Organ Donation Advocate

When Ryan O’Neal Parker, just 21 years old, passed away in a boating accident, his family’s life was changed forever. Each year, Ryan’s memory is honored with a fishing tournament at Lake Tuscaloosa – Hook a Line Save a Life.

The Parker family helps advance awareness of organ, eye and tissue donation by sponsoring this tournament each year. Proceeds are donated to the Legacy of Hope Education Fund. Thank you to the Parker family and the legacy Ryan left for generations to come.
