Event Festivities:  A key moment of our event will be the first introduction of a bone marrow recipient to their lifesaving donor. All contact for the first year after a transplant must be anonymous, so it is always a joyful, exciting moment when the two are able to meet in person for the first time! Music, refreshments, and more. Post race we are hosting an awards ceremony for the top runners.
