Maiden Media Dashes for Donors!

This year, Maiden Media was proud to participate in the 17th annual Dash for Organ and Tissue Donor Awareness! We turned out for a lovely day of walking and raising organ & tissue donor awareness. The Donor Dash took place on the 17th of April.

The Dash for Organ and Tissue Donor Awareness features a variety of entry levels for participants, from 10-kilometer and 5-kilometer runs to the 3-kilometer walk. All of the distances start from the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art and continue along West River Drive, following the Schuylkill River. The goal is to raise public visibility of organ and tissue donors, as well as promoting the high success rate of transplants. The Dash is open to transplant candidates, transplant recipients and family members, hospital personnel, donor family members and the general public.

Maiden Media team members Zain, Kevin, Dan, Lauren, Michelle and Josh turned out for the event. The weather provided plenty of sunshine but also a bracing wind in the morning. However, as the 3k walk got underway the temperature warmed up considerably. It turned into a very pleasant day and a great opportunity to raise awareness for this great cause. Thanks to everybody who came out. We’ll see you next year!
