Thank you to the nearly 300 participants who joined us at this years Delaware Donor Dash. This years event was a huge success thanks to you!! So far we have raised over $50,000 and we will still be accepting donations until November, so there is still time to hit your fundraising goal.
Gift of Life Donor Program along with Christiana Care Health System, Nemours Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children and the Delaware Organ and Tissue Donor Awareness Board are proud to announce the 4th Annual Delaware Donor Dash. The Delaware Donor Dash is a 5K run and 3K walk to promote organ and tissue donation in Delaware.
Funds raised through the Delaware Donor Dash go to support programs and activities designed to increase organ and tissue donor awareness, programs and activities in support of donor and recipient families, and other transplant and donation programs initiatives in Delaware.
Last year, Gift of Life Donor Program coordinated 1,412 life-saving organ transplants from 540 organ donors. In Delaware 107 residents received a life-saving organ transplant in 2016. However, there is still work to be done. Today, nearly 500 Delawareans and 118,000 people nationally are awaiting life-saving organ transplants.
