DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – The City of Dallas is hosting a Be The Match Walk+Run on March 2, 2013 to highlight the need for unrelated marrow transplants for blood cancer treatment.

The event, formerly known as Be The One Run, helps patients with blood cancers like leukemia find a marrow donor and receive a life-saving transplant.

According to event organizers, more than 12,000 patients in the U.S. are diagnosed with blood cancers like leukemia every year for which a marrow transplant from an unrelated donor may be their best or only hope of a cure.

The event raises funds to support marrow transplant research, help patients with uninsured treatment costs, and add more volunteer potential marrow donors to the Be The Match Registry, giving more patients hope for a cure.

The Dallas event, which is one of 13 held in cities across the nation, will include a 5K, 1K and Tot Trot. People of all fitness levels are encouraged to join.

Visit BeTheMatchWalkRun.org to register, fundraise or volunteer for the event.
