COVID-19 impacted our 11th Annual March for Marrow last year. Just weeks before it was scheduled at Shoreline Village in Long Beach for April 25, 2020, we had to go totally virtual! We managed to carry out our Silent Auction online, but this year, until we can get together again in person, we've decided to try an Online Raffle instead.
Our focus is on California Brands and California-made crafts and we'll e adding more items as we go. If you have a recommendation for something especially CALIFORNIAN and specifically fun, quirky, or useful(?) – and can donate it – please email Stephanie Hamm at email@example.com with the details. We really want to celebrate our fabulous home state with everything we do.
Please join us online for a Global Kick-Off for March for Marrow during the week dedicated to bone marrow failure disease, March 1-7, 2021. Following that March for Marrow California will be held from April 24 to May 1, 2021, which we are taking statewide this year – from San Diego to San Francisco, and Los Angeles and Orange County to Sacramento!
Our virtual platform features our 2021 Champion, Meghan Lambe, medical professionals, Be the Match, Asians for Miracle Marrow Matches, sponsors, school bands and cheerleaders, and runners, cyclists, walkers and fundraising teams supporting our efforts. Our goals are to educate the public about rare bone marrow failure diseases, their signs and symptoms; fund patient support and research for better treatments and a CURE; and identify the resources for bone marrow failure patients available in California.
Register to run or walk with us at www.marchformarrow.org, form a team, set a goal, and, along with buying your raffle tickets here, raise funds for the Aplastic Anemia & MDS International Foundation to provide information, support, and hope to the brave patients and families who are fighting bone marrow failure diseases.
