We're participating in the 2011 San Francisco Marathon this year and need your help!
Runners, supporters and friends, please help us reach our goal by selecting the DONATE button above. If you would like to help fundraise individually for this cause, select the JOIN THE TEAM button. When you join the team, you'll have your own fundraising page for Organs 'R' Us that you can share with your friends and family asking them to support you in the race.
Organs 'R' Us ("ORU"), promotes the need for organ donors. Through participation in athletic events selected for maximum publicity and fun, this group showcases their fitness proving that organ transplantation saves lives.
Pledge your support for 100,000 Americans (including 2,500 children) waiting for organs. 18 die each day before a donor is found. Since communicating a desire to donate will allow grieving relatives to make an informed decision, ORU encourages family discussions, not about death, but about offering a life saving gift.
Let's support our amazing runners and give the gift of life!
