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.
Join Gift of Life Donor Program to raise awareness for organ and tissue donation by supporting our Virtual Dash From Home – over a week of fun and community from Saturday April 10 to Sunday, April 18. The Dash, held each April during National Donate Life Month, brings together thousands to celebrate the life-saving power of organ and tissue transplantation and honors all donors who give others a second chance at life. Last year and this year it is being held virtually due to the pandemic. Even though we will not be physically together in one location, we will be joined virtually as one strong Gift of Life community. Learn more about our 2021 Dash From Home here!
The Donor Dash brings more than 14,000 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 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.
Walk or run to support organ and tissue donation
There are more than 5,000 men, women, and children in our region awaiting a life-saving organ transplant. You can help us make a difference!
At the Donor Dash you can join other passionate and committed people in one of three events: a 10k run, a 5k run, or a 3k walk, starting at the Philadelphia Museum of Art and heading down Martin Luther King Jr. Drive.
Registration is easy and takes less than 5 minutes.
Start a team and encourage friends and family to join you!
