Walk + Run with Be The Match


Walk + Run with Be The Match

Each year, thousands of patients need a marrow transplant, but don’t have a fully matched donor in their family. They depend on Be The Match® to help them find an unrelated marrow donor and receive treatment.

The Be The Match Walk+Run raises funds to help patients with uninsured treatment costs, support continued marrow transplant research to improve outcomes, and add more volunteer potential marrow donors to Be The Match Registry®, giving more patients hope for a cure.

For this event volunteers will be helping out with the following:
• Set-up and Breakdown
• Registration
• Refreshments
• Course Marshaling
• Start/Finish Line
• Water Stops
• And more!

Volunteers will receive the training they need to feel comfortable in their role, a t-shirt, and the appreciation of everyone who works to help marrow transplant patients.
