Brandi, along with her family and friends, will be participating in the 2016 Donate Life Run/Walk 5K, 10K to take place on September 10 in Walnut Creek.

Among the close to 1,000 people who will be attending are organ and tissue transplant recipients, donor families, hospital partners, political leaders, and community supporters. Continue reading
