Emily Leite's Fundraiser:

Run for Life

THE STORY:

As you know, my husband Dan is a recent heart transplant recipient and is jumping right into recovery. While it's exciting to see him on the road to living a normal life again, we are very much aware that none of that would be possible without our donor providing him a second chance. According to Lifeline of Ohio, 95% of Americans support organ donation but only 55% of Ohioans are registered. One Ohioan will die every other day waiting for a life saving organ transplant. In order to raise more awarness for organ donation, I have decided to run Cincinnati's Flying Pig Marathon on Sunday, May 1st in honor of my husband and our donor. I am asking for individuals to sponsor each mile I will run for $50, with the goal of raising at total of $1,300 to be donated to Lifeline of Ohio. While training for and then running a marathon is no easy task, it is something I enjoy and my small way of paying our donor's generosity forward. Will you join me on May 1st?
