Team Lifeblood 2020
Thank you to everyone who helped us reach a new record in fundraising last year. We raised about $32,000 from our online fundraising and from the event held at Winship.
We also set some cycling records. Our 4,000 mile cross country trip was truly a Ride for the Record Books. Here is an article from Bicycling Magazine about our ride:
We are at it again this year: spreading hope, raising funds, and creating awareness of the need for more donors on the registry, particularly ethnically diverse donors. This year we are also adding advocacy to our mission. We are helping Be The Match influence congress to re-authorize funding for the National Marrow Donor Program. This federal funding needs to be re-authorized every 5 years, including 2020.
This year because of the pandemic we are not going to do a long trip. We will be doing what we can. Put together your personal bucket list and go out and do it. Do your own thing: bike, run, hike, walk, get outside and enjoy life while helping to save others. Share your story and ask your friends to support the cause. Let's do this! Let's not let this pandemic stop us!
It is shaping up to be another great year for Team Lifeblood! Thank you in advance for your support.
