On June 7, Hector and Mikal Bencomo took part in the 5th annual Lifesaving 5K Run/Walk at Creve Coeur Park in St. Louis.

This foundation was created to raise organ donation awareness.

Its mission is to educate the public about organ donation and the significant impact each of us can contribute, to significantly increase the number of organ donations in the state of Missouri, to increase awareness about organ donation among the medical and paramedic professions and to honor and remember those who have made the decision to be organ donors and to celebrate their lives in the lives of others.

Mikal, who is currently employed with Mid-America Transplant Services in St. Louis, placed third in the women’s division.
