DASH for Organ and Tissue Donor Awareness: April 2, 2017

22nd Annual Dash for Organ and Tissue Donor Awareness

Join Team Penn Medicine at the 2017 DASH for Organ and Tissue Donor Awareness on Sunday, April 2! 

Held annually at the Philadelphia Art Museum, the DASH supports the work of Gift of Life Donor Program to educate the public about the importance of organ and tissue donation. With approximately 5,400 people waiting for life-saving organs in the greater Philadelphia region – the need for education and support is critical. 

There are options for everyone interested in participating, including a 3K walk, as well as a 5K run and a 10K run.

To register for the DASH:

  • Go to the DASH registration page.
  • Select “Register Here” and then “Join a Team”.
