The Donor Dash 5K Fun Run and 2 Mile Walk honors those who have given the gift of life, celebrates the lives of organ and tissue recipients, and recognizes those who continue to wait for a lifesaving transplant.
This is a family friendly event so no matter your skill level the DONOR DASH is open to everyone. Honor and support those who have been impacted by organ, eye and tissue donation and wear your best GREEN + BLUE apparel to celebrate the gift of life!
Over 114,000 men, women and children are waiting for an organ transplant in the US right now. Be a part of a community that is determined to end the wait!
Dash to Honor. Dash to Give Hope. Dash to Heal.

The Donor Dash Traveling Trophy was introduced for the 2018 race. Kahler's Cornea Crew took home the 2018 trophy. 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 2020 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! If you would like to show off your team t-shirt, bring an extra one to packet pick-up so it can be on display on race day.
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 Natalie Oakes at firstname.lastname@example.org
Green Fun Tent
Join us early for the Green Fun Tent! At this tent you will find fun GREEN items such as temporary tattoos, hair spray, face paint, glitter, stick on mustaches and much more! Make sure to stop by and get your GREEN on! Don't forget to wear the best and brightest green and blue outfit you can find!
