I'm a student at the University of Portland, and a member of the National Bone Marrow Registry.
The registry is holding a 5k Be the One Run on Sunday, July 15th 2012. I am interested in forming a team with fellow Spark People members!
If enough people show interest I'll be forming the team next weekend and starting plans for local fundraising in the metro/suburb areas. I think we have a great chance as a motivated team to raise well over $1,000 for patients and families waiting for a transplant!
I think this is a great opportunity as both a physical and philanthropic challenge. For me, my personal challenges include training for a 5k (my first!) and personally raising at least $500. Over the past few months I raised over $600 for the American Cancer Society Relay for Life, so I think I can do it!
If you are interested in joining my team for the Be the One Run, please either post here or email me: firstname.lastname@example.org
