Gift of Life is thrilled to have a team participating in the Tough Mudder. The Tough Mudder is a 10-12 mile endurance event obstacle course that tests strength, stamina, and camaraderie. It may just be the “toughest event on the planet”.
Gift of Life Bone Marrow Foundation helps children and adults suffering from leukemia, lymphoma, other cancers and genetic diseases find matching donors for blood, stem cell, and bone marrow transplants. Every year, more than 10,000 patients in the United States are affected with life-threatening diseases and their best or only hope for a cure is from an unrelated bone marrow, blood stem cell, or umbilical cord blood transplant. Approximately 75 percent of patients in need of a transplant do not have a matching donor in their family. They rely on registries like Gift of Life to find a match. Since its founding in 1991, Gift of Life has facilitated more than 2,400 transplants for patients worldwide.
Please help the Tough Mudders reach their fundraising goals by making a donation today. Your tax-deductible contribution will be used to add new donors to the worldwide bone marrow registry.
