Gift of Life Donor Program along with Christiana Care Health System and Nemours Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children are proud to announce the 4th Annual Delaware Donor Dash 5K benefiting organ and tissue donation and transplantation initiatives in Delaware.
The 3rd Annual Delaware Donor Dash 5K Run nad 3K Walk took place on August 6th at Dravo Plaza. The event drew over 300 participants and raised more than $30,000 to support organ and tissue donation and transplantation initiatives in Delaware! Gift of Life was proud to sponsor this event along with Christiana Care Health System, Nemours Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children and the Delaware Organ and Tissue Donor Awareness Board.
Events such as the Delaware Donor Dash 5K and the programs it helps to fund truly make a difference in peoples' lives. Last year, Gift of Life Donor Program coordinated 1,412 life-saving organ transplants from 540 generous donors, including Delaware residents, who received a second chance at life.
However, there is still work to be done. Today, more than 600 Delawareans and 120,000 people nationally are awaiting life-saving organ transplants. Community education plays an essential role in highlighting the importance of becoming an organ and tissue donor. - See more at www.donors1.org.
