If you enjoy being part of the powerful community that is Black Girls RUN, you will be energized and inspired by Donor Dash. It is the major celebration of the positive impact of organ and tissue donation as part of National Donate Life Month. More than a quarter of a million people have taken part in Dash since its founding. Join the Gift of Life family – an inspiring community filled with compassion, generosity, and gratitude – as we cheer for transplant recipients, honor heroic donors, support patients on the transplant waitlist, and share our life-saving mission.
There are more than 100,000 children and adults waiting for an organ transplant in the U.S. – and more than half of them are from multicultural communities. People from communities of color are at a higher risk of developing conditions that lead to kidney disease, such as diabetes and high blood pressure, the leading causes of kidney failure. Twenty people die each day in the U.S. waiting for a transplant, making organ donation a critical public health issue, especially for diverse communities.
Donor Dash spreads awareness of how important it is to register to become an organ and tissue donor – one of the most compassionate decisions we can make. One organ donor can save up to eight lives and a tissue donor can heal 100 others. Register for Dash and you will come in first place by helping others receive a second chance at life!
