BASF enthusiastically sponsored the Be The One Run in Houston!

Be The One Run® is a national series of run/walk fundraising events

that give patients with leukemia, lymphoma, and 70 other life-threatening

diseases a second chance at life. Every step participants take helps

patients receive the unrelated marrow transplant they need.

Every year, 10,000 patients need a marrow transplant but have no donor

match in their family. They depend on Be The Match®to help them find an

unrelated donor and a second chance at life.

Through Be The Match Foundation®, Be The One Run raises funds to support

marrow transplant research, help patients with uninsured costs and add

more potential marrow donors to Be The Match Registry®, giving more

patients hope for a cure.

At more than 9.5 million strong, the registry is the world’s largest and most

diverse listing of potential marrow donors in the world.

With a 5K, 1K Fun Run, and Tot Trot, Be The One Run is perfect for the entire

family and for people of all fitness levels.

Event dates can be found at BeTheOneRun.org
