Founded in 1996, Organs R Us (ORU), promotes the need for organ donors. Through walking and running, transplant recipients, candidates, organ donors, donor family members and others have generated $25 million of publicity promoting organ donation. Although started in the San Francisco Bay Area, ORU has grown throughout the US. Through participation in athletic events selected for maximum publicity and fun, this group showcases their fitness proving that organ transplantation saves lives.
Pledge your support for 125,000 Americans waiting for organs. Twenty die each day before a donor is found. Since communicating a desire to donate will allow grieving relatives to make an informed decision, ORU encourages family discussions, not about death, but about offering a lifesaving gift.
Since 1996, ORU has won the children's centipede division (ORU is the only entry in this division!). The Kiddie Pede has a 3 foot eyeball at the head and a four foot heart at the tail.
Wishing you healthy organs!
