Be The Match Walk+Run To Go

Transplant hope by planning a fun walk/run in your community. Be The Match Walk+Run To Go is a community led walk/run event, virtually supported by Be The Match. You set an event date and location to host a walk/run event in your community. And Be The Match will supply the materials you need to plan and execute the event in an easy to use website "To Go." Your Walk+Run website will be the hub for event information, marketing materials, and will manage the registration and fundraising components for you.

Hosting a Walk+Run To Go is an exclusive opportunity for partners committed to fundraising a minimum of $5,000. If you are interested in talking to Be The Match about planning an event, please contact us and we’ll be in touch shortly.

Past Event Stories

University of Nevada Las Vegas 

Student leaders formed a volunteer committee at the University of Nevada Las Vegas to plan a fun run to engage college students and the general public to support Be The Match. They worked to recruit teams from campus groups, patient families, local companies, and organizations. They secured media attention leading up to the event and garnered support from the local business community. The committee worked diligently to keep expenses low by getting most event items donated. The event brought together 200 participants and raised more than $10,000 for patients in need of a life-saving transplant!

Team Mathias

The community of Leesburg, VA hosted a 5k in memory of a young man. Mathias was a strong warrior whose spirit and courage inspired many. He lost his battle to Osteosarcoma, but never stopped fighting and wanted to raise awareness of Be The Match and the possibilities a bone marrow match might have for other childhood cancer patients. This event had over 400 participants, the support of 12 corporate sponsors, the whole community coming together to honor Mathias, and raised more than $23,000 for Be The Match! See an inspirational video from the event!
