We will be participating in the Gift of Life Donor Dash again this year on Sunday April 15th, in the hopes of raising awareness & money for a cause that is close to our hearts. We wanted to quickly share our story and connection to the organization, for those who weren't around back then.
In 2014, my Father In-Law (Dave's Dad) Jeffry, was the recipient of a heart transplant which gave the family some precious extra time to spend with him before he passed away that March. We walk (and run!) the Donor Dash in memory of him, to honor other families of recipients and donors, and of course to help the Gift of Life to support families like ours.
2018 marks the 5th year we are participating in the event. Last year we were able to recruit 57 members to the team and raised just under $2,500. Help us make year five the best yet, and get over 60 members raising over $3,000 for the cause!
Anyone that will be in the area on the day of the Dash, please sign up and join our team as a runner or walker. As you will see on the site- you can choose to run the 10k or the 5k, but everyone will do the 3k walk together after the races are complete. Registration is only $30 and includes a free Donor Dash shirt.
If you can't make it or just want to donate, you can do that on our team page as well. Anything that you can do to help us is GREATLY appreciated!
More info to come to the team as we get closer about our Team Jazzy Jeff T-Shirts, meet-up at the day of the race, brunch plans, and details.
