In 2011, I lost my Dad, at the young age of 57 to a stroke. It has been the most devastating loss I’ve ever had to face. Sometimes it takes these critical moments for us to realize the absolute importance of causes like organ donation. Unfortunately there was no miracle treatment for my Dad and our family, if only that could have been an option. It is with the appreciation for giving the gift of life to those in need that I ask for your help.
I'm very excited to be participating with the NetApp White team for this years Golden Gate Relay. This relay represents a unique opportunity for me to be part of a team supporting a great cause by joining with Organs R Us. This is my first major race since having my daughter Felice and I feel truly blessed that I am able to participate. (Scroll down)
My first memory of loving to run was being with my Dad in my Busia's front yard and racing him. He was faster than me and it was so exciting to trail behind him. Pretty soon he didn't want to race with me anymore but was always very encouraging of my passion for running. My profile picture is from a high school track meet with my Dad, where I have many favorite memories of sharing in PR's and exciting close races. Although he left us much too soon, his spirit is always with me and I know he would be excited about this relay.
I would like to fundraise $500 by April 15th with your help. Being a Radiologic Technologist I see on a daily basis the miracles of great medicine. The gift of life through organ donation is phenomenal, a truly worthy cause and no small feat. Please join me in support of this life giving and promoting event.
