The Buckeye Be The Match 5K raises funds to help patients in need of a bone marrow transplant. With your support in fundraising as an individual or team, you help more patients afford transplant, add potential marrow donors to the Be The Match Registry®, and make more life-saving research possible.

All contributions will support the work of Be The Match.

Be The Match

Join us in delivering cures by helping patients get the life-saving marrow or cord blood transplants they need.

For thousands of patients with blood cancers like leukemia and lymphoma, and other life-threatening diseases, a cure exists- a marrow or cord blood transplant. Yet, most don't have a fully matched donor in their family, so they depend on Be The Match. We operate the largest, most diverse registry of potential marrow donors and umbilical cord blood units in the world, and work to locate the best possible match for every patient. Not only that, but we provide one-on-one support, education and guidance before, during and after transplant. Your involvement with Be The Match helps give every patient the hope of a cure.
