Dear friends and family:
I'm running at an event (The Relay), for a distance of 190 miles, as part of a 12 member relay team. We run from Calistoga to Santa Cruz (Apr 30-May 1), rain or shine, hoping to reach Santa Cruz before Sun sets on Sunday. We are supporting the organization called ORU (Organs R Us), which is a non-profit that supports families facing life threatening illness, provides scholarships for the Transplant Olympics and purchases computers used to register organ donors.
Please read my dear friend (and organizer of/participant in this run) Naveen's story below:
"Three years ago, my little girl (Anoushka) was born with a kidney dis-order. She was on dialysis since she was five months old, and when she was a little over two years old, she got a kidney transplant. This transplant has given her, and us, a new lease of life. My wife and I are gifted to have a very good support system from friends and family, and enabled us to face this challenge in life. There are plenty of people like Anoushka, who are looking forward to a donor, to help change their lives for the better."
Help us in speading the good word, and donate generously towards this cause. Your support is very highly appreciated.
