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.
