About Our Walk+Run

Blood cancer has met its match. Join the fight.

For patients with blood cancers like leukemia and lymphoma, and other life-threatening diseases, a cure exists – a marrow transplant. By participating in a Be The Match Walk+Run and raising funds, you are helping to support those patients before, during and after their transplant.

Join the thousands of other participants across the country who are taking part in Be The Match Walk+Run events in their communities, and raising money to support our cause. Every dollar raised helps more patients afford transplant, adds potential marrow donors to the registry and funds our life-saving research.

You can make a positive impact in the lives of patients and their families. Participate in the 5K, 1K or Tot Trot and help create a place of celebration and remembrance for our patients and donors. Join the fight and get started today.

“Thank you will never be enough, but it’s all we have and it comes from the bottom of our hearts.”

 – The family of 3-year-old Dalton, a marrow transplant recipient

Where does the money go?

How your dollars save lives:

$25 covers one clinic visit co-pay. Patients must visit the transplant clinic daily or weekly during their 3-6 months of outpatient recovery. Clinic co-pays can add up to $300 a month.

$50 covers two days of meals for a patient and their caregiver during outpatient recovery.

$75 supplies lab researchers with critical materials to conduct ground-breaking medical research.

$100 covers the cost to add one potential marrow donor to Be The Match Registry, giving more searching patients hope for a cure.
