I am participating for the fourth year in the Be The Match Walk+Run, because as you know, Be The Match and its mission are very close to my heart. Four years ago, my dad had a stem cell transplant from an unrelated donor. I was lucky enough to have him by my side when the following year, I was able to repay that gift to another patient in need.
Just a week after last year's Walk+Run, my dad lost his corageous battle. Now I am running in memory of my dad, and of the thousands of other patients who need our help.
I’ve set a fundraising goal and I need your help to reach it.The money we raise will:
Help add donors to the registry.
Help patients with transplant costs; and
Fund research -- providing better outcomes to more patients in need.
If you are in Minneapolis, I would love to have you join my team for the Walk+Run. Even if you are not able to join us, please supporting me and together we can show blood cancer it has met its match.

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.
