Team Dano is participating in the Capital City 5K for Organ, Tissue and Eye Donation for the 7th year in loving memory of Dan Peterson, who died tragically in July of 2012 at the young age of 30. Our first walk/run took place just five days after the first anniversary of Dan's death, and it has become a wonderful way for us to get together every year to share our memories — with both tears and laughter — of a truly beautiful soul.
Dan’s family and friends miss him every day, but we take some comfort in knowing he lives on in so many others through the life-saving gift of organ donation. Each year Team Dano walks and runs to carry on Dan’s legacy of love and compassion for all he met by encouraging everyone to register to be an organ donor.
Dan touched so many lives during his short time with us, and he brought so many of us together through his love and friendship. If Dan made an impact on your life, please consider joining our team, donating to our campaign, or signing up to be an organ donor. Thank you!
