Running a relay is a group effort- it takes a whole team pulling together to train, motivate, and encourage each other towards the finish line. Raising awareness about becoming an organ donor is no different- it is one way to save many lives, and is as simple as checking a box when you apply for your drivers license or talking to your friends and family. Founded in 1996, Organs R Us ("ORU") promotes organ donation through athletics. Of 125,000 Americans waiting for organs, 20 die each day before a donor is found.
To sign up to be an organ donor, you can find out more at your local DMV or register here: https://www.organdonor.gov/register.html
