Plover resident receives USA Today award – WAOW

PLOVER, Wis. (WAOW)– A Plover man is being honored for his work saving lives.
Mark Scotch was named the 2021 USA Today Triumph of the Year award winner as part of their “Best of Human Kind” awards.
Scotch donated a kidney in 2020 and went on to create his organization called “The Organ Trail” where he completes bike marathons to raise awareness for kidney health.
“I’m really excited about what it can do to help us create exposure to further the mission of the organ trail which is just trying to educate people and let them know what we learned,” Scotch said.
Scotch said he plans to bike more marathons and continue spreading awareness so more people struggling with kidney issues can be helped.
