Arena District in Downtown Columbus, Start/Finish is on Nationwide Boulevard near Front St.
To promote organ and tissue donation and transplantation and to encourage Ohioans to join the Ohio Donor Registry and give the “Gift of Life.” By showcasing the involvement of those touched by donation and transplantation we aim to provide hope to the 110,000 Americans and more than 3,000 Ohioans currently waiting for a life-saving transplant.
Lifeline of Ohio, the non-profit organ recovery agency for Central and Southeastern Ohio.
Lifeline of Ohio is inviting our donor families to participate in our 2011 Dash for Donation as a way of remembering and honoring your loved one who gave the “Gift of Life”.
We encourage those Donor Families participating to bring two posters commemorating their loved one’s gift. We will be displaying one poster per family (weather permitting) at our Donor Remembrance Wall near the start/finish line and would love to have your poster there! It is a wonderful way to put a face to the heroes of donation.
The poster can include pictures, text, mementos, etc. but we do limit the size to a standard poster board (22” x28”) to help us get as many posters up as possible and to allow us to easily mount them on the wall. The second poster can be carried by the donor family during the race/walk.
If you cannot participate in the race, but would like to have a poster displayed, please drop it off at the Lifeline of Ohio offices by July 1, 2011. Don’t forget to include your name and phone number on the back so we can return it to you after the race. For more information, please contact Terri Louder at 614-384-7375.
Have a Mascot? Get Involved Here!
We welcome your mascot to participate in our “Kids and Mascots Dash.” Contact Rachel Lewis firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
We need volunteers to make the Dash a success! You can help with a water table, registration or directing runners. Contact Terri Louder for more information.
