The Charles O. Strickler Transplant Center at the University of Virginia is organizing their inaugural “Donor Dash” Friday April 23-Monday April 26, 2021. While future Donor Dashes are planned to be in-person events, this year we are planning a virtual event in recognition of the uncertainty of the current public health crisis and the impact it could have on everyone involved, especially our organ transplant recipient family.
Our Virtual 4 mile walk/run and a 1 mile “Transplant Trek” fun walk provides an opportunity for us to join together as a community to support the mission of the UVA Transplant Center (https://uvahealth.com/services/transplant) and to promote awareness of organ donation and the impact donors have on the lives of so many patients and families.
We are honoring the donors, the recipients and all the families who have been touched by organ donation. Whether you can walk, fun or cheer please join us!
Until 2017, 40% of Virginians in need of an organ transplant were seeking care outside the commonwealth. UVA’s leadership decided that improving access to care for those in need of a transplant became of utmost importance. With a great team effort, within two years, UVA doubled the number of organ transplants performed per year. The goal is to continue on this growth and quality path until all Virginians in need can get a successful transplant at UVA. Currently over 2400 Virginians are waiting for a lifesaving transplant and approximately 40% of Virginia adults have not registered to be an organ donor.
