I decided to run for CT Donate Life charity because I've experienced both sides of this bittersweet action. In April of 2006, a friend of mine was in a car accident that ended his life. He was an organ donor and through his donation of life he was able to help 60 people with the donation of bone. He also gave two people the ability to see and two serious burn victims the gift of skin. A few years later, in the fall of 2009, my friend's little sister was told that her liver had been failing since the day she had been born. That following June, I received a phone call from my friend saying that her sister was going to have a transplant that day. Haley was able to get a health liver because another family was brave enough to donate the organs of their loved one.
So, the half marathon is three days after my 21st birthday. Instead of asking for drinks at the bar (which would still be lovely) I'm asking for donations.
Thank you for all your support!
