BENEFITING: ORU EVENT DATE: OCT 1, 2016
Yes I am at it again! I ran a marathon in China and Australia & Buenos Aires in support of Organs-R-Us. This time I will again be a little farther from home. I am running the Kenya Wildlife Marathon on October 1, 2016.
That’s 26.2 miles, and yes all at once. Luckily, I am not doing this on my own. I am training again with my friend Maryanne who is also getting ready to walk the Kenya Wildlife 10K. More importantly even than my physical commitment to the program is my commitment to raise funds for Organs-R-Us. Founded in 1996, Organs-R-Us promotes organ donation through athletics. As a non-profit 501 (c) (3) Tax ID 45-3266453, Organs ‘R’ Us is dedicated to publicizing the need for organ donations. My participation in the marathon will help to raise funds in support of over 100,000 Americans (including 15,000 children) awaiting a life-saving transplant (20 die each day before a donor is found). As I run the course, you will be with me in spirit, and your sponsorship will inspire me to run stronger and faster to the finish line - whatever you can do to contribute matters…it all adds up! Your donation truly can make a difference. Thank you so much for your support and generosity!
