May 6, 2017 will be the day! Twelve brave souls of six men and six women from BURN East Bay MAC Golden Gate Relay team will be running the 191 mile long journey starting from City of Calistoga and finishing in Santa Cruz. Over the hills, along the narrow shoulder of the road, under the scorching sun, and into the cold midnight, our team will run 36 legs non-stop through 36 cities until the morning of May 7. We are running to raise funds for Organs 'R' Us (ORU). We are running to save lives!
