Dash From Home
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, 2021
THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING DASH FROM HOME!
Thank you to all the advocates, donor families, recipients, patients waiting, sponsors, community and hospital partners who made our Dash From Home such a memorable experience. We are truly amazed and humbled by your commitment to our organization and the Donor Dash.
Although we could not be together to celebrate the Donor Dash in person, we felt the love from the photos and videos you shared while you dashed from home! Please continue to share photos and videos and use #DashFromHome and tag @Donors1.
With your hard work and generosity, we raised more than $380,000 to help support and advance donation and transplantation, including community education and Gift of Life Family House.
Dash contributions will be accepted until August 31st online or can be mailed to: Gift of Life Donor Program, Attn: Donor Dash, 401 N. 3rd Street Philadelphia, PA 19123.

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.
