On May 4 2013, I will be running 194 miles through 36 cities and across the Golden Gate Bridge on team (name) with 11 friends promoting organ donation. During the Golden Gate 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 GG Relay is dedicated to Katie Grace Groebner (born 7/16/02) 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 110,000 Americans waiting for organ transplants.
PS Please run, walk, donate an organ(!), time (volunteers are needed even at 2 am, ouch!) or money online (include link to view team story and solicit online donations) or by check payable to Organs R Us, 570 El Camino Real, Suite 150-330, Redwood City, CA 94063. Please write (Vinerunners Napa Valley) on the bottom of your check.
