Dear Friend,
I wanted to take a moment to thank you for your kind donation to Racing To Register. I started RTR in 2009 because someone close to me needed a bone marrow donor and sadly could not find a match. We struggled to find a suitable donor, and even went around the country in the hopes of finding the right match or answer to our questions. What I learned was that many didn’t know how easy it was to join the registry, and that all too often people didn’t survive blood cancers because they can’t find a suitable stem cell or marrow donor. Only 35% of those in need will match with a family member, and the chance of matching can be as low as 1% for some minorities. Your donation will help allow us to continue to test more people. All it takes is a simple cheek swab with a cotton stick. That’s it. No blood test. If you want to learn more email me at tom@racingtoregister.com. Racing To Register uses endurance races as our platform. I have been lucky enough to race around the world in an effort to promote our mission. But you made a difference right here at home with your donation…a huge thank you from all of us at RTR!

Dear friend.

First, thank you, thank you, thank you!! We are so grateful that you have decided to donate to Racing To Register in support of your athletes efforts to run the marathon. This season we will have over 50 people from around the US competing in the Marine Corps Marathon (Washington D.C.) and NYC Marathon. In past years we have had more races, but this year we needed to focus on these two as well as our huge national event, City Swab. Your donation will help run City Swab 2014. The event is a one day national bone marrow donor drive whereby people around the US can go to a location and get swabbed, and join the registry. It is free and takes only a few moments. In our first year, 2013, we signed on more than 1,300 people and had 20 matches! Wow! But the event costs a bundle (over $100,000) and we have no major sponsor. So, we rely on the donations. EVERY one helps. I started RTR from my kitchen counter in 2010 in order to try and find a bone marrow match for my wife. Didn’t find one, but we have registered over 4,000 and helped many others. And with your help we can continue to do so. RTR uses endurance sports as our platform. So, if you want to run, walk, bike, swim, climb a mountain, or watch TV for a long time (that is an endurance sport ), let us know, and we can support you…as you support others. In closing, as Winston Churchill said “"We make a Living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.". God bless, Tom Kramer, founder Racing To Register
