About the Cause
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 cancers like leukemia, lymphoma and 70 other life-threatening diseases is in the hands of ordinary people - your hands. 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.
