The Phoenix Walk+Run is canceled.
Everyone at Be The Match is tremendously grateful for all of your work on the Walk+Run and your support for patients and their families.
The Phoenix Walk+Run team has been successful in achieving many great goals: engaging new people in our mission, raising essential funds and making the Walk+Run a wonderful experience for everyone. However, recent changes in transplantation are impacting Be The Match’s operating costs, which requires us to reprioritize our activities.
Although it is necessary, the reduction is disappointing for all of us who have invested time, energy and passion into this event. I’m keeping my head up by focusing on the great work we’ve done together and the support we’ve offered patients. I’m proud of what we’ve accomplished and I’m so appreciative that you joined the Be The Match team.
Our mission and our commitment to saving lives remains constant. Please continue to support the Be The Match mission. Reach out to me for ideas or find ways to help here.
Thank you so much for your support and all the effort you put in to making the Walk+Run a celebration of patients and their journeys to health!
Walk+Run National Director
P.S. I’d also like to invite you to consider attending the Be The Match Walk+Run Long Beach event on November 14, 2015.
