BENEFITING: The Icla da Silva Foundation, Inc.
EVENT: The Matchmaker 5K Run/Walk
EVENT DATE: May 16, 2015
Now and forever, I raise funds to continue the legacy of my mentor and colleague, Marlon Layne. Marlon is a rare gift to all of us. While his physical life ended in the face of a battle with Leukemia, his spirit lives on in us. Marlon's life could've very well been saved with a successful bone marrow match, and I do my best to help others in his situation find the miraculous marrow donation they need to survive.
Please support me in raising funds which go directly to the Icla da Silva Foundation to register more bone marrow donors and treating patients, which saves lives. Icla is the largest recruitment center for the Be The Match Registry in the United States, recruiting over 38,000 new potential bone marrow donors every year, with a strong focus on minority communities.
Also, PLEASE DO visit www.bethematch.org and register to be a bone marrow donor.
