BENEFITING: Donate Life Connecticut
EVENT DATE: Oct 13, 2012
I am running the 2012 Hartford 5K on October 13th to support Donate Life Connecticut to help create donor awareness, this comes 11 weeks post operative of a liver donation to Joe Sansone. This is my first road race after years and years of running for fun.
Donate Life CT is an organization that is committed to raising awareness about organ and tissue donation, and increase the number of registered donors. If there were more available donors, my donation to Joe would not have been needed and Joe would have had a liver transplant in a much earlier stage of his condition. I saved someone's life (it is a great feeling) and you can also.
I am asking you to please join with me and support my good friend Kevin Currie with a donation as he runs the half marathon for this cause. Financial donations are greatly appreciated and can be made on Kevin's page.
I will be running the 5K to support Kevin and show him the appreciation for honoring myself and Joe in his run. I am also running to create donor awareness. Please forget all the myths you have heard regarding becoming an organ donor, they are all false. The best thing you could do in life is to save another life and a donation from you or a family member will help. Please register as a donor, and help save a life.
