100% of the proceeds from the Miracle Match Marathon go to Be the Match, the National Marrow Donor Program, to help people who need lifesaving marrow and stem cell transplants.
That’s right folks, we bust our butts to bring you a great race then give all the money away.
Here’s everything you need to know about marrow donation and the Be the Match Registry:
Joining the Registry is simple – All it takes is a cheek swab and some paperwork. We will provide you with ample opportunity to do this during your stay in Waco.
You must be between the ages of 18 and 44.
Members of every race and ethnic background are needed.
70% of people do not find a donor in their family.
80% of donations are made in a non-surgical outpatient procedure much like giving blood.
There is never any cost to you.
If you are unable to join the Registry you can still help by making a donation to the Be the Match Foundation, becoming a Volunteer and spreading the word about this unique chance to save a life.
