The Relay Walk 2013
EVENT DATE: May 04, 2013
Gather your friends or enemies (12-member teams). Decorate your vans. Dress your best (costumes optional). It's the most fun 24 feet can have in the best place on earth. From the Marin French Cheese Co. to the Swanton Berry Farm in Davenport, California's Longest Party relays the message on donation through Organs R Us ("ORU").
12-member teams walk 24 legs (2 legs per walker, 3-7 miles each) through 28 cities and across the Golden Gate Bridge.
FOUNDED in 1996, Organs R Us ("ORU", "ORU and Friends") promotes organ donation through athletics. Of 110,000 Americans waiting for transplants, 20 die each day before a donor is found. Discuss your wishes regarding organ donation with your family and register online to be an organ donor.
ORU has generated publicity about the shortage of organ donors worth more than $25 million, supported transplant families facing life threatening illness, provided Transplant Olympics scholarships and purchased computers used to register organ donors online. ORU has no paid executives, officers or directors. (Jobs available; Salary=$0.)
