Who Will You Run For?
It was a cool, overcast April morning at Constellation Field in Sugar Land as runners, walkers and volunteers gathered for the Donate Life Texas 2nd Chance Run hosted by LifeGift.
As more and more people gathered for the event, more T-shirts with the image of Twana Schulz, Ambassador of Hope and double-lung transplant recipient, emerged. Twana lived five years with her transplanted lungs until they failed her in September 2015. During the five years she had with her donated lungs, Twana lived life to the fullest – joyfully and with no regret. Her friends and family were determined to represent her memory at the fun run by assembling the largest team in her honor.
And that’s exactly what they did. Led by team captain Doris Thomas, Team 2Lung was crowned largest team with close to 100 people. The presentation to Twana’s family and friends was full of tears, smiles and heartfelt embraces.
