The Icla da Silva Foundation's 5th Annual Matchmaker 5K Run/Walk is a fun-filled family-friendly event for people of all ages and abilities. The event will take place on the Firefighters Field, 455 Main Street, Roosevelt Island, NY on Saturday, May 16th, 2015.
I run the 5K every year in memory of all the patients I've worked with over the last 6 years as a community engagement representative for the Icla Da Silva Foundation. My journey with the foundation started shortly after my friend Caroline Clark, lost her battle to leukemia. We need as many people in the National Bone Marrow Registry, but we can't add them without the necessary funds. For every $100 raised we get to add a life saving donor to the registry. Help me save lives and add as many people to the registry as possible.

The mission of the Icla da Silva Foundation is to save lives by recruiting bone marrow donors and providing support services to children and adults with leukemia and other diseases treatable by marrow transplants.
