Crozer-Keystone Helps Raise Awareness for Organ Donor Awareness Month through Donor Dash

CROZER-KEYSTONE HEALTH | Grant Gegwich


In honor of Organ Donor Awareness Month, join Team Crozer-Keystone for the Gift of Life Donor Program’s 22nd Annual Dash for Organ and Tissue Donor Awareness on Sunday, April 2, 2017 at 7 a.m. starting at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Crozer-Keystone is teaming up with The Gift of Life Donor Program and the Pennsylvania Donate Life Hospital Challenge to support the Donor Dash.

The Donor Dash promotes organ and tissue awareness and consists of 10K and 5K races, as well as a 3K walk. All proceeds from the Donor Dash support and create the programs that educate the public about the importance of this awareness. This event draws participants such as transplant candidates, transplant recipients and family members, hospital personnel, donor family members and the public.

Last year, Crozer-Keystone’s Donor DASH team finished in third place and raised more than $16,000. This year will mark the eighth year the health system has participated in the Gift of Life Donor DASH. Continue reading
