2022 Green 5K

Please join us for Iowa Donor Network's Green 5K on Saturday, May 7, 2022 at Raccoon River Park in West Des Moines. Help us honor the lives of organ and tissue donors, celebrate the lives of recipients, recognize those who continue to wait for a life-saving transplant, and support organ, eye and tissue donation.

The Green 5K is Iowa Donor Network's largest fundraising event to support our mission and life-saving programs. We encourage all participants to create individual or team fundraising pages to honor your loved ones and to support our mission and donor families.
