Color The Registry Kickoff

January 12 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Join us at Mount Washington Tavern from 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm on Wednesday, January 12th to officially kick off There Goes My Hero’s Color The Registry Program! Color the Registry is dedicated to diversifying the national bone marrow donor registry to offer hope to ALL blood cancer patients in need of a bone marrow transplant, regardless of their ethnic or racial background. 

 

Currently, people of color are drastically underrepresented on the registry, which means they have a much harder time finding a life saving bone marrow donor. Patients of European descent have a 79% chance of finding their donor match, whereas only 25% of African American patients are able to find a bone marrow donor. Color the Registry seeks to increase the odds for people of color to find their lifesaving bone marrow match. 

Color The Registry is supported and in partnership with Howard County Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha, The Qlarant Foundation, and The Pomeroy Foundation.

We can’t wait to see you there! To RSVP, please email elena.manco@theregoesmyhero.org  by Jan 10, 2021.
