Description

_ The 2018 Be The Match Walk+Run - Chicago:

Join the fight! 

  • Be The Match® Walk+Run is a fundraising event that helps patients with blood cancers like leukemia find a marrow donor and receive a life-saving transplant.
  • Every three minutes someone is diagnosed with a blood cancer. It can happen to anyone at any time. But so can a cure – a marrow transplant. The cure for blood cancer is in the hands of ordinary people.
  • The majority of patients don’t have a fully matched donor in their family and so Be The Match helps match volunteer unrelated marrow donors with those patients who need them.
  • Visit BeTheMatchWalkRun.org to register, fundraise and volunteer.

100% of event net proceeds raised help more patients afford transplant, add potential marrow donors to the registry and fund our life-saving research.
