On May 3-4, We will be running (or volunteering) 191 miles through 36 cities and across the Golden Gate Bridge on team "Fringe With Benefits" [Vinerunners Running Group] as 12 friends promoting organ donation. During the Golden Gate Relay, known as California's Longest Party, passing the baton to the 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 125,000 Americans waiting for organ transplants.
We have run this event several years and it is always heart warming to meet the organ recipiants on race day. Thank you for supporting us and these special people!
PS If you would like to pay by check, please make payable to Organs R Us, 570 El Camino Real, Suite 150-330, Redwood City, CA 94063. Please write (Fringe With Benefits [Vinerunners Running Group]) on the bottom of your check.
