Matchmaker 5K Run/Walk
EVENT DATE: May 17, 2014

Together, we walked, we ran. And in the final hour, we enjoyed the Capoeira performance as our kids played while enjoying the animal balloons and face-painting.
We were fortunate to be joined by marrow recipients – Survivors, who have received a 2nd chance at life because of an unrelated donor. This is why we exist. This is why we continue in our tireless efforts to continue to raise awareness on the need to grow the Be The Match registry.
Runners, walkers, friends and loved ones, we thank you for joining us in support of children and adults with leukemia and other diseases treatable by marrow transplants. Together we raised nearly $50,000 to continue supporting the families we serve. Thank You!
