BENEFITING: SAN FRANCISCO BAY TO BREAKERS FOUNDATION
EVENT DATE: Jul 01, 2012
Yes I am at it again! A year ago I ran a marathon in China in support of Organs-R-Us. This time I will be a little farther from home.
I am running the Gold Coast Marathon in Australia on July 1, 2012. That’s 26.2 miles, and yes all at once. Luckily, I am not doing this on my own. I am training with my niece Olivia and friend Maryanne who are also getting ready to walk the Gold Coast 10K.
More importantly even than my physical commitment to the program is my commitment to raise funds for Organs-R-Us. Founded in 1996, Organs-R-Us promotes organ donation through athletics. As a non-profit 501 (c) (3) Tax ID 94-33333306, Organs ‘R’ Us is dedicated to publicizing the need for organ donations. My participation in the marathon will help to raise funds in support of over 100,000 Americans (including 15,000 children) awaiting a life-saving transplant (20 die each day before a donor is found).
As I run the course, you will be with me in spirit, and your sponsorship will inspire me to run stronger and faster to the finish line - whatever you can do to contribute matters…it all adds up! Your donation truly can make a difference.
Thank you so much for your support and generosity!
