Donor Dash

Each April Gift of Life hosts the Donor Dash in celebration of the life-saving power of organ and tissue donation and to honor the donors who make it possible.


Crowds of over 10,000 attended the 23rd Annual Donor Dash despite less-than-perfect weather.

Each April, the Donor Dash brings more than 10,000 participants together to walk or run in celebration of the life-saving power of donation and honor the donors who make it possible.

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

Proceeds raise awareness and support transplant families

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

All proceeds from Donor Dash benefit the Transplant Foundation, the charitable foundation supporting the mission of Gift of Life Donor Program.

Donor Dash raises funds to support activities that increase organ and tissue donor awareness, including sponsorship of Team Philadelphia’s participation in the Transplant Games of America. Proceeds also go to programs for transplant recipients and families, including Gift of Life Family House.

Walk or run to support organ and tissue donation

There are more than 5,400 people men, women, and children waiting for a life-saving organ transplant in our region. You can help us make a difference!

At the Donor Dash you can join other passionate and committed people in one of three races: a 10k run, a 5k run, or a 3k walk, starting at the Philadelphia Museum of Art and heading down West River Drive.

Registration is easy and takes less than 5 minutes.

Start a team and encourage friends and family to join you!
