Jen's Birthday Fundraiser
Last summer when I was lucky enough to meet Chris Bautista he shared with me the story of his son. Two plus years prior Luke had tragically passed away and became a hero when he donated five organs (both kidneys,his heart,liver and pancreas) effectively saving the lives of 5 people awaiting transplants. I didn’t get to know Luke but because of him I became an organ donor and have since learned about the amazing ability to save lives through organ donation. Shortly after, coincidentally, my friend and fellow spinner Erin Racine became a living donor by donating a kidney to a good friend of hers . Nothing has ever shown me "the gift of life" more.
On May 19th I will be running in the Celebration of Life 5K to honor Luke along with other organ and tissue donors, pay tribute to recipients, offer hope to those who continue to wait and remember the lives lost while waiting for the Gift of Life.
Please consider supporting my part in team Luke and the NJ Sharing Network as my "birthday fundraiser" this year and truly celebrating the gift of life .Every dollar is greatly appreciated.
