2018 Be The Match Walk+Run - Charlotte

Marcel's Marrow Minions

TEAM MARCEL'S MARROW MINIONS are back!  Last year for the 2017 Be The Match Walk & Run in Charlotte we came in 2nd for our fundraising efforts!  I was so incredibly proud...but admittedly disappointed as up until 3pm the day before the race we were in FIRST place....until another team did a single donation of $10k to bump us to 2nd place. 


This past year has been quite a journey....navigating life without our head Minion, Marcel (my Dad & Krista's husband)....but we have carried on.  We know how incredibly proud he is for everyone showing support to Marcel's Marrow Minions.


Although the head minion, Marcel, won't be there in person we know he will be with us.  We want to continue to make him proud. Again, this is a bittersweet event for us  but we know we HAVE to continue to support Be the Match....that is what Dad would want us to do. There are thousands of people-children and adults-all waiting for a life saving bone marrow match.


Be the Match IS the cure for blood cancers.  They provide life saving bone marrow transplants but they can't do it without us....


We want as many team members as possible....it will be a fun event in the morning and to entice you to join....there will be a party afterwards. Details to follow but the official Marcel Marrow Minions Party will be at the Halfway to St Patti's day festival at the Galway Hooker that afternoon. Please spread the word...Dad loved a good party and the more the merrier!


Please join our team for the Be the Match Walk Run in Charlotte on Saturday September 22nd. We need all the support we can get!  We will be providing shirts to our team members and will be in touch to get shirt sizes closer to the race.


Thank you for the bottom of our hearts for helping us to continue to support Be the Match. 

We are beyond blessed for the love & support!


With Sincere Gratitude,

Danielle and Krista

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.
