The Donor Dash consists of a 10K run, 5K run, and 3K walk at the Philadelphia Museum of Art to raise awareness and funds for organ and tissue donation in our region.


Currently in the United States, there are more than 119,000 people waiting for a life-saving organ transplant. Unfortunately, 22 people die each day because an organ did not become available in time.

We are looking to community partners like you to help make a difference in the lives of those affected by organ and tissue donation. There are more than 5,600 people - that’s friends, family, neighbors and colleagues - in our region who are waiting for a second chance at life.

The goal of the Dash is to bring awareness to this critical need to register more organ and tissue donors. All proceeds from the Dash benefit public education programs designed to increase the number of people who register as organ and tissue donors, as well as Gift of Life Family House.

Organ donation and transplantation work. The Dash celebrates the life-saving power of donation and honors all of the donors who make it possible. By supporting Gift of Life and the Donor Dash, you will help raise awareness about the critical need to increase the number of those registered as organ and tissue donors.
