A dozen moms from our local elementary school, Springer, are participating in the Golden Gate Relay to raise money for Organs R Us. From Calistoga in Napa Valley, across the Golden Gate Bridge, to the ocean in Santa Cruz, each member of our team runs three legs in rotation.
The transfer of the baton from runner to runner symbolizes the transfer of an organ from donor to recipient. Of 110,000 Americans waiting for organs, 20 die each day before a donor is found. Discuss your wishes regarding organ donation with your family.
