Gophers Register 230 For Be The Match

April 15, 2014

The University of Minnesota football team hosted a Be the Match drive today in the Great Hall of the Coffman Memorial Union.

This is the second straight year that the Gophers have partnered with Be The Match, which is operated by the National Marrow Donor Program and helps patients receive life-saving transplants. They are dedicated to raising awareness and funds needed to help all patients get the transplant they need.

The Gophers helped register more than 230 people, after only 75 signed up last year.

Be The Match focuses on finding potential donors ages 18-44, so it is critical that they register as many college students as possible. Their research shows that younger donors are best for patients because they provide the greatest chance for transplant success. Donors between the ages of 18 and 44 are asked to donate more than 90% of the time.
