Brandon’s Run 5K Run/Walk is a run/walk to raise funds for the Georgia Transplant Foundation in celebration of AOS sixth grader, Brandon Hayes, an eleven-year old liver transplant recipient. At the age of 4, Brandon experienced acute liver failure, putting him in dire need of a new liver. After a nationwide search to find a matching donor for Brandon, it was his mother, Cheri, who made the ultimate sacrifice, donating 30 percent of her liver to Brandon, at a time when living liver donor transplants had been all but eliminated. Brandon and his family started this outstanding initiative to raise awareness about organ donation and to raise funds to help provide financial relief to Georgia families who have a family member in need of an organ transplant.
