After thoughtful consideration, it is with deepest regret, that the Donor Dash that was postponed to October 4, 2020 will be canceled.
We were in hopes that the trajectory of Covid 19 effects would have diminished to allow the execution of this inaugural event; however, this virus in relentless.
This decision was made out of concern for the health and safety of immunocompromised transplant patients, their families, friends, medical personnel, vendors and volunteers who were looking forward to this grand celebration. We appreciate and thank you for your patience and support.
While we are disheartened about this outcome we are optimistic about 2021. Please mark your calendar for April 24, 2021 for the UVA Donor Dash!

On October 4, 2020, the Charles O. Strickler Transplant Center at the University of Virginia is organizing the first annual “Donor Dash.” This event will be a 4 mile walk/run and a 1 mile “Transplant Trek” fun walk. Race Proceeds benefit the UVA Transplant Center for the importance and awareness of organ donation.
We are honoring the donors, the recipients and all of the families who have been touched by organ donation. Whether you can walk, run or cheer please join us on October 4th.
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.
