Dear Friends and Family,
On May 5 & 6, the 12 members of TEAM WICKED will be running 199 miles through 36 cities and across the Golden Gate Bridge during the largest event in the world promoting organ donation. During The Relay, known as California's Longest Party, passing the baton to my next team member will symbolize the transfer of an organ from donor to recipient. The Relay is dedicated to eight-year-old Katie Grace Groebner who needs a new heart and lungs.
Please discuss your personal wishes regarding organ donation with your family. This will allow loved ones to make an informed decision if you become a potential organ donor.
Thanks in advance for your support of 100,000 Americans waiting for organ transplants.
