A hardy crowd braved the wind and driving rain to participate in the Be The Match bone marrow donor drive. All it took was 10 minutes to complete a health questionnaire and take a cheek swab, and the participants were added to the registry. People with leukemia and other blood disorders need a bone marrow transplant and more people are needed in the registry.
If you missed this event, there is another drive happening on March 8 at Congregation Beth Sholom. Or go online to Bethematch.org
and register there.
