I am not a runner.
In fact, there is a distinct possibility that I could finish last in this “race” and may require reflective gear for when the sun sets and I cross that finish line. But with a little encouragement, some oxygen, and with the knowledge that the funds that I help to raise just might – or WILL - save someone’s life is all I need.
I dare say we all live pretty good lives. And we all take life for granted to some degree. Lives can change in an instant and sometimes, sometimes, people are given a new chance at life as a result of organ donation. And other times that chance never comes because there just aren’t enough to go around.
I am not a runner. But I am going to run my heart out trying to do my part because if that was my kid who needed a transplant, I need to know I did everything I could to keep that hope alive.
Please consider a donation. And please, pick me up off the ground at about mile 6 and remind me of this message.
