2018 Be The Match Walk+Run - Long Beach

The Ali Cats

Ali Pochebit was an avid runner before and during her fight against cancer. We're running in this year's Be The Match 5K to honor our beloved sister, aunt and friend. Join us in raising funds to help more patients like Ali!  

From the start of her diagnosis in 2012, Ali came out swinging. She was determined to kick cancer's butt and be there for the birth of her first niece Emma Grace, her sister Meghan's wedding, many more runs by the water, glasses of wine and home cooked meals (the girl loved her steak!). Because of the Be the Match and the bone marrow transplant she received, Ali fought her diagnosis for two years - she not only held her niece the day she was born, but celebrated her first birthday. She wasn't just her sister Meghan's maid of honor, she was the life of the party.

Let's celebrate the amazing person Ali was and help people like her fight this awful disease. 

By making a donation to our team, the money we raise will:

  • Add volunteer marrow donors to the registry
  • Assist patients with transplant costs such as hospital stays, exams and prescriptions
  • Fund groundbreaking research to provide a cure for more patients

Together we can give patients like Ali the hope they deserve and the tools they need to fight. Please join us! Scroll down to track our team progress and see the amazing list of people you'll be joining by donating! Thank you!

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.
