The Matchmaker 5K Run/Walk - Roosevelt Island, NY
The Matchmaker 5K Run/Walk benefiting the Icla da Silva Foundation is a fun-filled activity for people of all ages. It brings together marrow donors, marrow transplant recipients, patients searching for a marrow donor, family caregivers and a host of other supporters to highlight the need for unrelated marrow transplants.
The goal of the event is to raise funds to add more donors to the Be the Match Registry and support patients with out-of-pocket expenses related to their bone marrow transplants.
