On May 5, I will be running (or volunteering) 199 miles through 36 cities and across the Golden Gate Bridge on team (Vinerunners) with 11 friends 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 nine-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.
PS Please run, walk, donate an organ, time (volunteers are needed even at 2 am, ouch!) or money by check payable to Organs 'R' Us, 501 (c) (3) Tax ID 94-3333306, 570 El Camino Real, Suite 150-330, Redwood City, CA 94063. Please write (Vinerunners) on the bottom of your check.
We are a local running group in Napa looking to give back to our community by running for this cause. Please support us any way you can, even small donations make huge differences! I can collect your check or cash and mail it in to Organs 'R' Us if it makes it easier for you. Our goal is to raise $600 by April 15th.
Thank you for your generosity!
