              Since 1996, Gift of Life Donor Program, together with our dedicated volunteers, has hosted the Donor Dash to promote organ and tissue donation.  The Dash celebrates the life-saving power of donation and honors all of the donors who give others a second chance at life.  

              The popular annual event, which attracts more than 12,000 people from throughout the tristate region, raises essential funds to educate the community about the need for more people to register as organ and tissue donors. 

              Twenty people die each day in the U.S. waiting for an organ. Currently, 117,000 men, women and children are waiting for a life-saving organ transplant. The need to educate the public about the importance of registering as organ donors is a critical public health issue.  By supporting the Dash, you are making a difference for others and you are helping us to save more lives! 

              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.
