On May 2 and 3, I will be running 191 miles through 36 cities and across the Golden Gate Bridge on team Scrambled Legs with 11 friends (this may change after the race! :-) ) promoting organ donation. During the Golden Gate Relay, known as California's Longest Party, passing the baton to my next team member will symbolize the transfer of an organ from donor to recipient. The Golden Gate Relay is dedicated toKatie Grace Groebner (born 7/16/02) who received a new heart and lungs on 6/14/14.
Please discuss your personal wishes regarding organ donation with your family. This will allow loved ones to make an informed decision if you become a potential organ donor.
Thanks in advance for your support of 125,000 Americans waiting for organ transplants.
PS Please run, walk, donate an organ(!), time (volunteers are needed even at 2 am, ouch!) or money online or by check payable toOrgans R Us, 570 El Camino Real, Suite 150-330, Redwood City, CA 94063. Please write Scrambled Legs on the bottom of your check.
