Life has many interesting surprises!
I was running this race just for fun and to raise funds, but this race will be more important to me personally, I found out in the last week or so that my 28 yr old cousin,Bis Orlando Morales, is in need of an urgent kidney transplant... Kidneys works til they can't anymore, and he had no symptoms or any indication he was sick... until now that it's urgent. The family is getting tested to see if there's a match, I just hope there is and that he can get new kidneys in time. He's taking it very well and is trying to be a pillar of support for his wife and 2 yr old son. I'm dedicating my run to him and to finding a match soon.
Thank you for your support and please take some time to research and discuss with your family what is required to become an organ donor, just checking off the box on your Driver's license is not sufficient. =D
