Truebeck Runs Golden Gate Relay for Organs ‘R’ Us
For the second year running, Alexandria Real Estate Equities (ARE) and Truebeck Construction partnered together for the Golden Gate Relay–a grueling 2-day, non-stop 191-mile relay race from Calistoga, CA to Santa Cruz, CA. Sponsored by the International Society for Pharmaceutical Engineering, our 12 member team ran to raise awareness and funding for Organs ‘R’ Us, a Redwood City based non-profit organization.
Founded in 1996, Organs ‘R’ Us promotes organ donation through athletics. The transfer of the baton from runner to runner has symbolized the transfer of an organ from donor to recipient. A relay is not about being the fastest, but learning what it takes to be a winner. The focus is 12 runners working together, giving their best for the team. Surmounting adversity, helping teammates and other teams, running in the moonlight and making special friends are all part of the GGR romance. Congratulations to all the runners and thank you to our partners and sponsors.
