THE STORY:

Hi!  I am Kari!  I am running the 5K at the NU Hartford Marathon to benefit Donate Life Connecticut on October 11th.  I am very passionate about raising awareness about organ and tissue donation.  Besides meeting so many wonderful people who have been affected by 'the gift of life' through my position as Director of Donate Life Connecticut, my inner circle has been touched many times by donation and transplantation.

In 2003,  my younger sister, Mandy became a donor after a fatal car accident.  She was driving to her nursing clinical early one snowy February morning...Mandy was three months from graduating college with her BS in nursing.  Mandy wanted a career that would help and save the lives of others - and although she had yet to begin her nursing career- her last gift to the world brought life to many.

At our wedding, Mandy was paired up with one of my husband and my best friends, Jason.  Check out the picture of them as bridesmaid and usher!  Jason too was a do-gooder - especially passionate about saving the earth.  In April 2012, he passed away unexpectedly and also became a donor - saving the lives of dozens of strangers.

My Godmother, Barbara suffered for years with back problems and in 1999 underwent back surgery that included transplating a piece of donated bone into her back.  Now, Barbara has returned to her favorite pastimes including bike riding!

And finally, I met Leigh when I was 16 years old waitressing at the local restaurant. We became and have stayed very close friends.  After an ACL tear during her college career as a soccer player at BU, she received a tissue donation to repair the damage. She is still an active athlete on her town's recreational softball team!

So, in memory and in honor of these people that mean so much to me, I am running to raise money to support a cause I know they'd approve of.

Please support me.  It will feel good to give a little!  

Thank you!
