This year on April 30th and May 1st, Team FearSmart, the 12 member team comprising of Knowles Corporation employees will be running Golden Gate Relay Marathon in support of raising donations for 'ORGANS R US'. This year marks the sixth consecutive year for team FearSmart.
The Golden Gate Relay is "California's Longest Party." From Calistoga in Napa Valley to Sonoma, Marin, Sausalito, across the Golden Gate Bridge at midnight, to San Francisco, Palo Alto and Silicon Valley to the ocean. Featuring the beauty of the Bay Area, the course boasts many tourist destinations.
Each runner from a team of 12 runs three legs in rotation. The 36 legs through 36 cities are 3 to 8 miles and rated easy to very hard allowing runners to select legs that match their strengths. Runners of all abilities are challenged, contribute and have a great time.
Since 1995, in Golden Gate Relay Marathon, the transfer of the baton from runner to runner has symbolized the transfer of an organ from donor to recipient. The Golden Gate Relay has been dedicated to transplant recipients, candidates, organ donors and donor families participating as runners, walkers, volunteers and guests.
There are more than 125,000 Americans waiting for Organ donations. Please help them, by being part of the relay as a runner/volunteer and donate some amount for a great cause. The donations can be contributed online or by check payable to Organs R Us, 570 El Camino Real, Suite 150-330, Redwood City, CA 94063. Please write (my team name - FearSmart) on the bottom of your check. Ask your employer to match your contribution with a tax-deductible contribution to ORU.
You can also discuss your personal wishes regarding organ donation with your family. Register online as an organ donor. Any type of help in supporting this great cause is highly appreciated! Come, Cheer us! Help us spread a word for a great cause! Please share this webpage with your family, friends and colleagues.
