I joined Team Be The Match to raise money for the Twin Cities 10 miler event on October 6th because I’m passionate about saving lives!
In college, I added myself to the registry and was lucky enough to be called on once for additional blood testing. Although I wasn't selected for donation, I have given to Be the Match in other ways by volunteering at the annual Run/Walk event as well as the Gala each Fall. I also recently started "giving" in a big way this year as I started working in a Training and Development role at Be the Match this past May.
I was also more personally impacted when my best friend Kathy (she is in the pictures volunteering with me!) went through the blood marrow donation process with her brother-in-law Jerry Jansen. I know Jerry will be supporting us from above and I will be running in honor of him.
Please help me reach my fundraising goal by making a tax-deductible contribution. Your gift delivers cures to patients desperate for a second chance at life. Every dollar counts. Together, we can make a difference!
