In celebration of National Donate Life Month, the Donor Dash is an annual event honoring the lives of organ and tissue donors, celebrating the lives of organ and tissue recipients and recognizing those who continue to wait for a lifesaving transplant.

The 24th Annual Donor Dash will take place on Sunday, April 14 at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. The event includes a 10k run at 7:10 a.m., a 5k run at 7:20 a.m., a Kids Fun Run at 7:45 a.m. and a 3k walk at 8:30 a.m.

The popular annual event, which attracts more than 10,000 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. Held at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, it is our largest and most visible event of the year.
