Q: Can I bring my pet/dog to the race?
A: We love to see your furry family members, but we must insist that you keep them leashed and outside of the Tate Pumphouse. Please also remember to be respectful of pets that may not be comfortable around other furry friends or human friends. All pet owners must pick up after their furry family members and dispose of their accidents appropriately.
Q: I heard something about an event playlist. Can you tell me more about it?
A: Absolutely! We have asked those connected to donation and transplantation to help us build a Spotify playlist that participants can listen to while participating in the Wyoming Donor Dash. The songs on the playlist might remind someone of a donor, a donor’s family or loved ones, or could be a song that kept a transplant recipient motivated throughout their transplant journey. Be sure to follow the Wyoming Donor Dash on Spotify and enjoy it during the 5K, or any time really!
Q: Where does registration money go?
A: Your registration fee helps to cover the cost of the event including t-shirts, event logistics and location fees, permitting, safety and insurance costs, and marketing costs.
