A total of 5,857 participants either ran or walked in Sunday’s Donor Dash at Washington Park. In the crowd, donor families and donor recipients. The annual event by Donor Alliance brought together thousands of Coloradans who honored the lives of organ, eye and tissue donors — and celebrated the lives of their recipients. “I went to a physical and was told I had stage 3 cancer. I had 12 months to live,” Stephen Salcedo said. As of Sunday, it had been 17 months since his liver transplant. Before the start of the 5K, he was at the front of the running crowd.
