    Be The Match Walk+Run

    Saturday, September 30, 2017

    Blood cancer has met its match. Do right and join the fight at the New York Be The Match Walk+Run on September 30, 2017. Participate in our 5K, 1K or Tot Trot and help us deliver cures!

    The Walk+Run is family friendly and open to all ages. All Tot Trot participants receive a superhero cape.

    Roosevelt Island Firefighter’s Field is home to the event village, which features free refreshments, photo stop, giveaways and a marrow donor registry drive. Race day registration is simple and every participant receives an event T-shirt. We are also looking for event day volunteers to help the morning of September 9th.

    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.
