We are a dozen Bay Area runners who are 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 — 191 miles in two days.
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.
Thank you for your support of our race and this great cause.
Brittany, Joy, Grace, Kara, Sarah, Claudine, Karen, Nikkie, Roopal, Amy, Meredith, and Renee
