We are Team CoRUNavirus Raiders, a group of 11 Mom friends who have been enjoying socially distanced outdoor workouts. We have challenged and committed ourselves to complete a Virtual 10K or 5K run/walk by October 25th, 2020, in support of Be The Match to raise money for patients with blood cancers or other life-threatening diseases to get the care and support services they need. In fact, we are lucky to have a cancer survivor among us!
Your gift can add new potential bone marrow donors to the registry, assist patients with uninsured transplant costs, and fund innovative research to improve transplant outcomes.
Did you know.... At Be The Match, the vision is to Democratize Cell Therapy- Equal Outcomes for ALL. Today, if you are a white patient you have a 77% likelihood of finding a matched donor on the registry. If you are an African/Black American patient, your chance of finding a matched donor drops to only 23%. This is a 54% point difference just based on your ethnic background. There are three driving factors for this disparity—a lack of matched donors on the registry, the likelihood of saying ‘yes’ when called, and finally a lack of access to care. Your donation and support can help with efforts to minimize the disparities patients face during these trying times.
Please help Team CoRUNavirus Raiders reach our fundraising goal by making a tax-deductible contribution. Your gift delivers cures to patients desperate for a second chance at life.
Every bit of support counts! Together, we can make a difference!
