Join the Be The Match Registry! One cheek swab is all it takes. Be the one to save a life. Many prizes will be raffled with all proceeds going to Be the Match.
Dickinson, in partnership with the Be the Match Registry and the collegiate Get in the Game campaign, is sponsoring a marrow donor registry drive and fundraiser on Friday, April 14th, from 12PM to 4PM in the Holland Union Building's Social Hall. The event is organized by the football team and its coaches. Individuals ages 18-44 are encouraged to become part of the national Be the Match Registry of potential marrow donors. The registry is searched by doctors to find suitable matches for patients—many of whom are battling cancer—and need a marrow transplant. The registration process involves paperwork and a simple cheek swab and takes about 15 minutes.
