About Earl Young’s Team
Victories are sweetest when shared with others. Just ask Earl Young. The moment of glory that came with winning a gold medal at the 1960 Olympics has produced countless moments of joy for others. Earl has taken his medal around the world, placing it in the hands of everyone from school children in remote African villages to heads of state.
In 2012, Earl found himself on the receiving end of teamwork when a stranger in Germany made the selfless decision to donate her bone marrow. Those two defining moments led to the creation of Earl Young’s Team, an organization that aims to defeat blood cancer through donor awareness. Please join our team and make yourself available to save a life.
