Friends, this is our team's 10th year running the Relay - twelve crazy fools running from Calistoga to Santa Cruz the first weekend in May. We have no chance of winning the race, but we hope to attain a more significant accomplishment and perform some respectable fundraising for organ donation awareness.
This cause is one worthy to rally behind. Rhiannon's sister, Ellie, was the successful recipient of a gorgeously plump, pre-owned kidney five years ago. And this year we are running in honor of Andrew O'Driscoll's cousin, Bernard O'Driscoll, in Ireland who is undergoing treatment for leukemia and is also on the kidney transplant waiting list.
While the roster is full of other lunatics and I can't invite you to join us on the run, please consider supporting the promotion of organ donation through a contribution to Organs R Us. You can make your donation on line at
And, in the unlikely event that my body parts are in reasonably good shape when they have outlived me, I am a registered organ donor. Registering is easy and takes only a minute - go to
It’s good karma, and you’ll feel more virtuous.
