The Commercial


A world famous 21 year old man from Palestine hears that a 28 year old Canadian Male
needs a Kidney and is desperate. He wants to donate his, but finds out he can’t, so instead
he volunteers to walk, carrying the famous Torch Of Life, in a 500 km 18 day marathon, from
Ottawa to Toronto during the coldest time of the year, in the hopes that his powerful story
& feat will inspire a Hero to step forward & save Anthony’s Life.         Time is ticking....

We hope this commercial will help bring awareness to the Canadian Public & people worldwide about the importance of organ & tissue donations
