Hi, my name is Bill Tonkinson. 20 years ago I had Leukemia and needed a life saving Bone Marrow Transplant. Fortunately for me, Be The Match found me a perfect match. As a way of paying it forward, for the last 7 years I have been a volunteer courier for Be The Match transporting Bone Marrow and Blood Stem Cells across the country for people awaiting a a life saving transplant. For the last 5 years, I have been on the organizing commitee for the Be The Match Philadelphia Walk/Run. In November last year, I received the Volunteer of the Year Award at the Be The Match National Convention in Minneapolis, Minnesota. I would have never won this award without all of you, with the large amount of people we have on Team Tonk and the enormous amount of money that you donated. Please get the word out to all of your friends, family and co-workers about the Walk/Run. It's a great cause and a really fun event. Let's make this years event the biggest and best ever. Please join or support Team Tonk and help me give back to this amazing organization!

Every 3 minutes someone is diagnosed with blood cancer.
Thousands of patients with blood cancers like leukemia or other diseases like sickle cell anemia, need a marrow transplant to survive. Most patients don’t have a fully matched donor in their family — and that’s when they turn to Be The Match®. By participating in a Be The Match Walk+Run, or donating funds, you are providing life-saving support to those patients in need. Join the fight.
