Last year’s Dash From Home was an outstanding success thanks to more than 250 transplant recipients, donor family members and supporters who took part. Their #DashFromHome social media posts reached more than 100,000 people. We’ll reach thousands more this year with your help.
Since 1996, a quarter of a million people have attended the Donor Dash and its life-saving message has reached millions through media and community participation. Our largest fundraiser, all proceeds from the 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 Gift of Life Family House.
The need to educate the public about the importance of registering as an organ and tissue donor is a critical and escalating public health issue. With ongoing advancements in transplantation, the need for organ donation grows. Twenty people die each day in the U.S. waiting for an organ. Currently there are more than 5,000 men, women and children in our region waiting for a life-saving organ transplant and more than 100,000 nationally. Gift of Life welcomes your partnership in helping us raise awareness of this important issue.
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.
