Save a life with a simple cheek swab and a decision to join the Be The Match bone marrow registry.


Dickinson Football will host its 3rd annual Be The Match, Get In The Game bone marrow Registry Drive on Wednesday, March 25, 2015 from 12-4pm at the HUB Social Hall.

 

Every four minutes, someone is diagnosed with a blood related cancer. Dickinson Football is dedicated to offering these patients hope.

 

Two spring Get In The Game marrow drives at Dickinson have already produced two matches. Former men's lacrosse player Reed Salmons '14, and Claire Paulsen '17 have donated peripheral stem cells and marrow to help cancer patients.

 

In fall 2014, Dickinson Football players Kyle Santorine '17 and Gavin Harter '17 founded the Dickinson College Be The Match On Campus – Pennsylvania Alpha Chapter, becoming the state's first college campus to establish a club to support marrow registry drives and awareness. 

 

Dickinson welcomes the entire Carlisle community of people ages 18-44 in generally good health, to participate and join the registry. The event is free, and will include several raffles for a flat screen television and other local prizes.

 

DONATE | If you would are unable to joint the registry, and/or would like to donate to the Dickinson College Be The Match On Campus chapter, please donate here.
