The Golden Gate Relay
May 6, 2017
Marin French Cheese will host The Golden Gate Relay. For the 23rd year, the ground will be used as the start for walkers and the leg 12 for runners.
“California’s Longest Party!”
From Marin to Sausalito, across the Golden Gate Bridge through San Francisco to Palo Alto and through Silicon Valley to Santa Cruz, the 128-mile course boasts the largest number of tourist destinations of any walk. After walking for 24 hours through 28 cities, 12-member teams walk to victory along the ocean while furthering The Relay mission to increase awareness of 100,000 Americans waiting for organ transplants.
The Relay is the Largest Event in the World Promoting Organ Donation,
Through Organs ‘R’ Us, the transfer of the baton from runner to runner symbolizes the transfer of an organ from donor to recipient.
For this event the Marin French cheese’s store will stay open later during the day to supply with fresh beverages, hot soup and sandwiches.
