Last Saturday we went to North Liberty (down by Iowa City) for a 5K that promoted donor and tissue donation awareness. It was really, really great.
Like I said before, the guy that was in charge of it does it as sort of a tribute to his mom, who donated her kidney to her son. He spoke before the race and he brought me to tears. This week will be his seven year kidney-versary. He talked about the life he's gained because of kidney donation. He now has a wife. And a son.
All the kids. With their ribbons. New friends.
"...Let us run with endurance the race that is set before us.” (Heb. 12:1).
