Description

Headquartered in Boca Raton, Florida, Gift of Life is an internationally recognized bone marrow and blood stem cell registry. Through its life-saving work, Gift of Life is a world leader helping children and adults find the matches they need when they need them.

Gift of Life will hold its 4th Annual Walk for Life on Sunday, February 9, 2014. The Certified 5k walk/run is the only event in South Florida that is solely dedicated to raising awareness for bone marrow and blood stem cell transplants. Gift of Life uses funds raised at the Walk for Life to add new donors to the worldwide bone marrow registry. Registering one volunteer donor costs $60. It is the generosity of others that allows us to continue our lifesaving work.

Every donation brings us one step closer to our vision  a match, anytime, anywhere, for anyone.

Other Info
Join Gife of Life and walk emcee, Ashely Porter, from the List, for the 4th Annual Walk for Life! Every year, 10,000 patients are diagnosed with illnesses that require a bone marrow or stem cell transplant and there is only a 30% chance that a sibling will be a match.  All proceeds raised from the Walk are used to add new donors to the registry.  Gift of Life's Walks have added thousands of donors to the registry, which has already resulted in 39 matches being for patients in need.  Help us make this year even more successful!
