Twelve Los Angeles Frontrunners are making their first return to The Relay since 2012. We are back and we have some Relay newbies and we are ready to run 190 miles for a great cause, Organs R Us. ORU promotes organ donation through athletics. They also generate publicity about the shortage of organs, support families facing life threatening illness, and provide scholarships to attend the Transplant Olympics. Sadly, of Americans waiting for organs, 20 die each day before a donor is found. The Relay helps provide awareness of this issue and also provides funding for ORU's work. Team Glitter And Yunicorns asks that you take time to think about the cause of organ donation and that you assist also through sponsorship of our team. The money you donate is going directly to ORU. (Don't worry, we aren't taking any for GU and glitter).
