THE STORY:

RACING TO REGISTER wrote -

TEAM RTR will once again be participating in the Broad Street Run in Philadelphia, PA. This event draws over 30,000 runners and is the most popular 10 miler in the world. And for the first time in 30 years, entry is only via lottery. But, once again, Racing To Register is one of only a select few charities that were provided race entries to help further their mission.

TEAM RTR runners will help not only raise some needed funds so the charity can keep furthering its' mission, but they will also help to inspire others to join the Bone Marrow Donor Registry. Each runner will also be responsible to find 5 people to join the Registry. With only 9 million people on the Bone Marrow Donor Registry, the chance of finding a match is very hard, in fact only 40% at most will find a suitable stem cell or marrow donor.

Every year we lose to many people that we have come to know and love because they do not find the proper donor. This year alone we have worked with 3 patients that did not survive. This is not acceptable!

Help each of these runners raise awareness, and funds, so that we can continue to make sure everyone has a chance at life!
