BENEFITING: Donate Life Connecticut
ORGANIZER: Donate Life Connecticut
EVENT DATE: Oct 11, 2014
I started running last year to fulfill a goal of running a 5K. I never imagined that I would grow to love it and want to start running longer distances. Running has become a way for me to improve my health, manage my stress, and reach goals that I never thought possible. I love that my kids are able to watch me reach these goals and I hope that I am setting an example for them that with practice and dedication, anything is possible.
I have joined the Donate Life Connecticut team to honor the life-saving gift that someone selflessly gave to my brother in law 7 years ago when he received his heart transplant. If it wasn't for organ donors and their families, Dave would likely not still be with us today. I run for him, his donor and his family as well as all of those anxiously awaiting a transplant. Please consider donating to this very worthy cause.
