Bonnie L. Mencher
May 5, 2012 will be my 4th year running The Relay with team Barbarians. We start in Calistoga and run almost 200 miles to Santa Cruz. That means our team members run non-stop throughout the night and oftentimes during some very challenging weather. After the first five hours we're all pretty much exhausted, in pain, and annoyed with one another. However, this is nothing compared to what those who are waiting for an organ donation/transplant go through. The relay transitions (passing of the bracelet between runners at one of the 36 exchanges) signify organ donation.
Please help me and team Barbarians reach our goal of raising $2400 this year-any amount helps. If you would like for us to run in honor of someone you know who received an organ donation, is waiting for one, or who passed while waiting-please let me know their name and some information about their situation so we can post their name & story on our vans.
