Trine 5K supports bone marrow organization

Trine University’s annual 5K Run & Walk, held during Homecoming weekend, will benefit a nonprofit organization that supports those seeking bone marrow transplants.

Hosted by the university’s Health Sciences Association and office of alumni services, the race will take place Saturday, Oct. 5, with registration beginning at 7:30 a.m. under the Ryan Skywalk and the race starting at 8:15. The 5-kilometer course runs up and down Thunder Drive and through neighborhoods on Angola’s southwest side.

The $10 registration fee includes a T-shirt, race bib, race day packet, water and refreshments. The registration table also will collect donations for Be The Match® and offer the opportunity to sign up for the organization’s bone marrow registry.

Operated by the National Marrow Donor Program® (NMDP), Be The Match® is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping every patient get the life-saving transplant they need. The organization provides ground-breaking research, innovative technologies, patient support and education for those facing life-threatening blood cancers.
