Since 1996, Donor Dash has raised millions to support organ and tissue donation education and awareness efforts.

Proceeds from the Donor Dash benefit the Transplant Foundation, the charitable foundation that supports programs and activities for donor and recipient families. These include Team Philadelphia’s participation at the Donate Life Transplant Games of America and the Gift of Life Family House.

By supporting the Donor Dash you help raise awareness about the critical need to register as an organ and tissue donor.
