Be The Match Walk+Run Chicago
Running: Kids Run/Fun Run, 5K
May 6th, 2018
The Be The Match Walk+Run Chicago is a Running race in Chicago, Illinois consisting of a Kids Run/Fun Run and 5K.
Be The Match Walk+Run is a fundraising event that helps patients with blood cancers like leukemia find a marrow donor and receive a life-saving transplant.
Every three minutes someone is diagnosed with a blood cancer. It can happen to anyone at any time. But so can a cure - a marrow transplant. The cure for blood cancer is in the hands of ordinary people.
The majority of patients don't have a fully matched donor in their family and so Be The Match helps match volunteer unrelated marrow donors with those patients who need them.
