YOU have the power to cure blood cancer.

Join us for the upcoming Be The Match® Walk+Run!

Each year, thousands of patients need a marrow transplant, but have no donor match in their family. They depend on Be The Match® to help them find an unrelated marrow donor and receive treatment. The cure for blood cancer is in the hands of ordinary people – your hands

Be The Match Walk+Run is a run/walk fundraising event that gives patients with leukemia, lymphoma and 70 other life-threatening diseases a second chance at life. Every step participants take helps patients receive the unrelated marrow transplant they need.

The Charlotte Be The Match Walk+Run is Saturday, September 28, and will include a 5K, 1K and Tot Trot.
v Visit BeTheMatchWalkRun.org to register, fundraise and volunteer. Sponsorship opportunities are also available, and range from title sponsorships, to sponsoring a water station, to having a booth at the event. The following link has details on local sponsorship opportunities: http://www.bethematchfoundation.org/site/PageServer?pagename=btor_sponsor

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

Be The Match Walk+Run invites participants to walk or run in the footsteps of patient families searching for a marrow donor or those who have undergone a life-saving transplant thanks to the kindness of a stranger and the advances in medical science.
