    New York ‘Be The Match’ Walk+Run

    Saturday, October 1

    Heroes like you cure blood cancer! Join us at the New York Be The Match Walk+Run on October 1. 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 finishers receive a superhero cape.

    Roosevelt Island – Firefighters 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.

    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 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.
