THE STORY:

This will be my first time participating in the Marine Corps Marathon! I'm so excited and will be raising money for "Race to Register" in honor of my mother-in-law, Susie Mae Averhart Bennett.  Mother Bennett, as I affectionately called her battled with multiple myeloma.  Multiple myeloma, is a cancer of plasma cells that starts in the bone marrow, a type of white blood cell normally responsible for producing antibodies. In multiple myeloma, collections of abnormal plasma cells accumulate in the bone marrow, where they interfere with the production of normal blood cells ultimately weakening the immune system.

With your help (by registering to be a bone marrow donor) and your financial donations we can help others that are facing the same type of battles as my mother-in-law did. Won't you make a difference!

RACING TO REGISTER wrote -

In 2014 we are back at the Marine Corps Marathon, in Washington, D.C. We will have 50 runners helping raise awarness for the need to have more people join the Bone Marrow Registry.  The MCM is one of the most popular events on the planet. That is why it is sold out! But you can join 35,000 other runners and help inspire others to live, fight cancers, and people to join the Bone Marrow Donor Registry. It’s easy! Think you cannot run 26.2? Well goBEYONDpossible and know you can. Think of the determination it takes to go through a marrow or stem cell transplant! 26.2 is easy compared to that. And, we can offer you coaching to get you there. TEAM RTR has a 100% completion rate. You will make it! You can!

We need more poeple on the registry, consdier:

  • Only 40% of those in need find a match
  • Leukmia is the number one childhood killer
  • Minorties have a signifcantly lower chance of finding a match
  • More than 10,000 people every year trun to the registry to find a donor
  • The chance of matching with a family member is only 30%

We need your support to continue to raise awareness and get more people to join the regsitry. A gift of only $65 buys one testing kit.

Thanks for supporting RTR!
