Welcome to My #RUN4LIFE Personal Page
I am teaming up with Donor Network West to raise awareness about the need for organ, eye and tissue donation by participating in the 10th Anniversary Donate Life Run/Walk 5k, 10k, and Kids Dash. I am excited to say that this will be the third year in a row that I will be joining in this effort and very worthy cause that not only helps so many, but that also celebrates those touched by donation and honors the donors who have given the gift of life.
I am participating to honor my son who lost his life in 2017. He was just begininng to enter the prime of his life and had a bright future ahead of him. He was funny, smart, courageous, and his heart was as big as his smile. He also had a laugh that was truly infectious. My son's loss will always be difficult to bear, but one thing that has brought me some comfort is knowing that he lives on in others and has helped them by giving them another chance at life - a decision he made on his own at a young age - which is very reflective of his character and just one more reason for me to be proud of him. Teaming up with Donor Network West to raise awareness is just one of the ways that I continue to heal, honor him and celebrate his life.
I am inviting you to help me raise awareness of this cause by either joining my team, sponsoring me or by making a donation. Funds raised help provide much needed education on organ, eye, and tissue donation through community outreach, research, clinical events, annual Donor Family Gatherings and funds for programs. Each person touched by Donor Network West’s public education campaigns, who then registers as a donor, has the potential of saving 8 lives through organ donation and improving another 75 lives through tissue donation.
