Step One

Click here to register online for the Donor Dash through Race Roster. You will need to create a RaceRoster account or sign in with Facebook to continue. Fill in Participant #1 registration information. At the bottom of the page, under "teams", select YES when asked "would you like to join or create a team?".

 

Select "Join a Team" and choose Team Transplant from the drop down menu. Continue through to payment, enter your promo code (if applicable), and complete your registration! 

Registration costs for Donor Dash are $35 for adults and $15 for youth (17 and under) and seniors (60 and above) online. Prices for all age groups will increase by $5 on race day. The last day to register online with Team Transplant via RaceRoster will be Sunday, July 9th, 2017.

Step Two

 

Click here to participate with Team Transplant, create your subteam if you choose, and personal fundraising page for the American Transplant  Foundation. Be sure to share your donation page on social media! You will be spreading the word and raising vital funds to help organ transplant recipients and living donors through your personal campaign.

Once you join Team Transplant, all you need to do is raise a minimum of $50 (children 17 years of age and under are exempt from the minimum) for the American Transplant Foundation. You have until July 31, 2017 to make the $50 commitment, after which ATF will charge the donation commitment to your credit card.

Walking And Running With Team Transplant

Team Transplant is running and walking to raise awareness and funds for those who can't. The Donor Dash is a 5K run/walk  dedicated to honoring the lives of organ and tissue donors, celebrating the lives of organ and tissue recipients, and recognizing those who continue to wait for a lifesaving transplant.
