2012 Donor Dash

Donor Alliance to Host 13th Annual Donor Dash July 15 in Honor of Organ, Eye and Tissue

Donors, Recipients and Patients Awaiting Transplants

Colorado’s largest donation event aims to exceed 5,000 participants this year

Donor Alliance, the federally-designated, non-profit organ procurement organization and American Association of Tissue Banks (AATB) accredited tissue bank serving Colorado and Wyoming will this month once again host the Donor Dash. The 13th annual 5K run/walk is to honor the lives of organ and tissue donors, celebrate the lives of organ and tissue recipients and recognize those who continue to wait for a lifesaving transplant. The event will take place the morning of July 15 in Denver’s historic Washington Park.

The Donor Dash has steadily grown and more than 4,100 people, including about two hundred volunteers and 100 teams, participated in last year’s event. Donor Alliance hopes to surpass 5,000 participants this year. The event is open to people of all ages and offers a terrific family-friendly summer activity.
