6,000 Southlanders to Join Sixth Annual Donate Life Run/Walk on April 26 at Cal State Fullerton
Date:4/22/2008

Life California Registry is an essential tool in our quest to end deaths on the national organ transplant waiting list," said Bryan Stewart, president of Donate Life California. "Signing up ensures your decision to donate is honored and relieves your family of the responsibility of making such an important decision at a difficult time."

More than 100 teams of walkers inspired by organ and tissue donors, organ recipients, and transplant candidates form the heart of the Donate Life Run/Walk experience. Among them are:

-- Thirteen school superintendents -- Sandra Barry, superintendent of the

Anaheim School District, is taking early retirement to donate a kidney

to her son. She will be joined by 12 other area school district

superintendents plus 50 others;

-- Nineteen mayors from Orange County cities including Aliso Viejo, Brea,

Cypress, Fountain Valley, Fullerton, Huntington Beach, La Habra, La

Palma, Laguna Niguel, Los Alamitos, Newport Beach, Paramount,

Placentia, Santa Ana, Tustin, Villa Park, Westminster and Yorba Linda.

Civic leaders including Assemblymember Mike Duvall will walk with

constituent donor family members and transplant recipients;

-- Transplant surgeons and employees from Platinum sponsors Cedars-Sinai

Comprehensive Transplant Center and St. Joseph Hospital Kidney

Transplant Program will walk with their patients;

-- "Charlie's Angels", friends and family of former Rams offensive

lineman Charlie Cowan, who passed away April 29, 1998, while awaiting

a kidney transplant;

-- Team BSC (Brian's Support Continues) organized by Shelley Campbell of

Tustin, whose 18-year-old son Brian saved six lives through organ

donation two years ago. Campbell's Run/Walk fundraising web page has

attracted such personalities as baseball great Rod Carew;
