The Green 5K is Iowa Donor Network's largest fundraising event to support our mission and life-saving programs. 

The Green 5K Fun Run 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 Green 5K 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 106,000 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!

We encourage all participants to create individual or team fundraising pages to honor your loved ones and to support our mission and donor families.
