A close friend of mine and her family are on their 5th year participating in California's Largest Party from Napa Valley to the Pacific Ocean, running The Relay through 36 cities and across the Golden Gate Bridge at midnight in support of Organs R Us. I have been fortunate enough to be involved, helping this amazing family by piloting/co-piloting the runner's van and helping the team keep up their high spirits throughout the race. Chocolate! Most importantly, this year Team STD is running in memory of another family member, Megan Greco, who passed away unexpectedly at the young age of 23. Megan gave the gift of life and she lives on through the 6 people she saved. This family is pretty amazing, they have been fortunate enough to have been a recipient of an organ, celebrating each day and recently, with sadness, a donor. They are strong, resilient, and determined to bring awareness and help to support Organs R Us. It's quite an incredible weekend to witness. Please help us in providing a second chance for thousands of people each year!
