Get Involved 

Traveling Trophy

The Donor Dash Traveling Trophy will be introduced for the 2018 race. The goal of the competition is for each team to try and raise the most money for their run/walk team in support of Iowa Donor Network. The winning team will be announced at the Donor Dash and will get to start the race as well as keep the traveling trophy until the 2019 Donor Dash! 

Show Us Your Team Spirit

Every year, teams show up in wonderfully decorated t-shirts in honor of loved ones and we want to show them off! Enter, The Team T-shirt Wall of Fame

How it works: 

1. If you have a team t-shirt, bring an extra one to the Donor Dash and we will hang it on the wall of fame. 

2. Individuals throughout the morning will be encouraged to donate to the team or teams they feel have the best t-shirt.

3. The team that raises the most money on race day will be highlighted at the race! Funds raised by each team t-shirt will count towards the team fundraising goal. All funds will support organ, eye and tissue donation. 


Circle of Life Memorial Garden Posters

Would you like to honor your loved one in our memorial garden? Please order your poster through the 'Circle of Life Poster' button at the top of the page. All posters are $17 and are kept by Iowa Donor Network to display year after year. If you have ordered a poster through the GREEN 5K Fun Run + Walk, you do not need to purchase a second poster as it will be displayed at the Donor Dash. Questions? Please contact Kaylie at khoyle@iadn.org.
