Barbarians XX... the 20th year of rampaging Barbarians terrorizing the Golden Gate Relay (goldengaterelay.com) in support of its charity Organs'R'Us. Our team will be running in the Golden Gate relay May 2 & 3 in support of this cause and appreciate any donation.
ORGANS R US (ORU and Friends 501c3 45-3266453) promotes organ donation through athletics. The 1996-1998 Relays were dedicated to three-year-old Delaney Corbitt. After Delaney received a kidney in 1997, President Clinton signed a GGR shirt for Delaney while runners crossed the finish. The 2009-2016 Relays were dedicated to Katie Grace Groebner (born 7/16/02) who received a new heart and lungs on 6/14/14. The 2020 GGR is dedicated to Napa County firefighter Ken Oeveren who received a kidney on 1/25/19.
OF 125,000 AMERICANS waiting for transplants, 20 die each day before a donor is found. Discuss your wishes regarding organ donation with your family and register online to be an organ donor. ORU has no paid executives, officers or directors (Jobs available, salary=$0). ORU has generated publicity about the shortage of organ donors worth more than $25 million, supported families facing life threatening illness, provided Transplant Olympics scholarships and purchased computers for registering organ donors.
