Be The Match Donor Swab Kit Assembly Day

  • Lakewood YMCA 2119 Chapel Hill Road Durham, NC, 27707 United States (map)

Join us for a great volunteer opportunity at the Lakewood YMCA. We're partnering to help Be the Match assemble Donor Swab Kits. Be the Match helps match potential bone marrow donors to patients battling diseases like leukemia and lymphoma. This is done through simple mouth swabs. 

We're assembling 500 kits for potential Be the Match donors to use. You could assemble a kit that someone uses to be the match and potentially cure someone with a life-threatening disease. You could #BeTheCupid. Join us for this great opportunity to support an important community organization!

While we won't be actually registering potential donors at this volunteer event, if you are interested in registering -- please go to the Be The Match website where you can request a packet to be mailed directly to you. https://bethematch.org/support-the-cause/donate-bone-marrow/join-the-marrow-registry/

For more information about the YMCA volunteer event, contact Zach.Fisher@YMCATriangle.org.

In honor of our #LukaTheLion, his anonymous bone marrow donor, and all his health care providers.
