Swab a Cheek Marathon

Swab a Cheek, Save a Life is a wonderful organization that enrolls minority and multiracial bone marrow donors. They support the Gift of Life organization. Team Swab a Cheek will be participating in this year's Marine Corps Marathon in Washington DC on October 25, 2009. The team is looking for donations and support.

The marathon is a whopping 26 miles!! If a participate cannot run that far, there is a smaller 10K (6 miles) run also. If you would like to help out Team Swab a Cheek please click here to make a donation.

It is so important to enroll as many minority and multiracial donors as possible on the marrow registry. A minority or multiracial patient is more likely to match another person of the same ethnicity. We need as many people on the registry as possible.
