Every year, 12,000 blood cancer and blood disease patients like Joshua need a marrow transplant to survive. By making a gift to Be The Match, you help ensure that every patient receives the care and support services they need. Thank you!

Be The Match Cycling Challenge

YOU have the power to CURE BLOOD CANCER!

Join a cycling community transplanting hope. Help patients with blood cancers like leukemia get the life-saving marrow transplant they need. All the money raised by this program will be used to add more marrow donors to the registry.

The Be The Match Cycling Challenge has a flexible structure to allow participation by teams and individuals from all over the world. It is not built around a single event.

  1. Sign up, form a team, join a team, or sign up as an individual.
  2. Choose a cycling goal that is appropriate for you and fundraise against it.
  3. Grab your friends and ride to save lives.
  4. Like our Facebook group page, Be The Match Cycling Challenge, to share stories and photos, to organize rides with other participants or team members, and to receive updates.

Signing up is simple. Just click on the Join My Team button on the right and follow the instructions. This will get you registered and set up with a personal fundraising page. After you sign up, a Be The Match representative will be in touch with you to find out if you are starting a team, joining an existing team, or signing up as an individual. They will also answer all the questions you may have.

We encourage all participants to donate and/or fundraise at least $100. Participants who raise $500 or more will receive a custom Dri-Fit t-shirt.
