ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - A University of Michigan group advocating for organ donations has formed a line - to highlight the line of people waiting for transplants.

The Wolverines for Life group gathered Monday on the Ann Arbor campus. Messages on participants’ signs included, “22 people die each day in the U.S. because not enough organs are available” and “3,500 Michigan patients are waiting in line today for an organ transplant.”

Organizers, who also advocate for tissue, eye, blood and bone marrow donation, say nobody should die on a waiting list. They encourage people to donate blood and sign up for the Michigan Organ Donor Registry.
