About

Heroes like you cure blood cancer - Join us at the Chicago Be The Match Walk+Run on Saturday, April 29th!

Please volunteer and help us deliver cures! Each year, thousands of patients need a marrow transplant but have no donor match in their families.They depend on Be The Match to help them find an unrelated marrow donor and receive treatment. The cure for blood cancers like leukemia, lymphoma, and 70 other life-threatening diseases is in the hands of ordinary people - your hands.

The Chicago Be The Match Walk+Run raises funds to help patients with uninsured treatment costs, support continued marrow transplant research to improve outcomes, and add more volunteer potential marrow donors to Be The Match Registry , giving more patients hope for a cure.

You can help make the Chicago Be The Match Walk+Run a success. We need friendly, energetic volunteers ready to donate their time on event day to a great cause. Volunteers help with:

  • Set-up
  • Registration
  • Refreshments
  • Course Marshaling
  • Start/Finish Line
  • Water Stops
  • Breakdown

We value our volunteers and encourage a fun and positive volunteer environment - we support you because you support us! You’ll receive the training you need to feel comfortable in your volunteer role, a T-shirt, and the appreciation of everyone who works to help marrow transplant patients.

Sign up to be an event day volunteer at www.bethematchwalkrun.org/chicago and encourage your family and friends to join you!

Please email bethematchwr.chicago @nmdp.org with additional questions.
