Happy Race Week, friends! The Be The Match Walk + Run is happening THIS Saturday, July 26th at Brown's Island, and Fleet Feet Sports Richmond is a proud sponsor of this event. There will be a 5K run beginning at 8:30 and 1K walk+run and Kid's Tot Trot. It's not too late to register! Use the promo code fleetfeet to sign up and receive $5 off your race entry fee.
We will be hosting packet pick up here at our store on Friday, July 25th from 12pm-6pm. Additionally as part of our Gear Up Week, if you come in this week between July 21st-25th and mention Be The Match, 10% of your purchase will be donated back to the organization.
If you're unable to run or walk at the event, you can still make a difference! Consider volunteering or donating your time to this great cause.
Are you wanting to know more about this fantastic organization? Be The Match® operates the Be The Match Registry®, the world's largest listing of potential marrow donors and donated cord blood units.
Every year, thousands of people of all ages are diagnosed with blood cancers like leukemia or lymphoma, sickle cell anemia or other life-threatening diseases. Seventy percent of people do not have a donor in their family and depend on the Be The Match Registry to find a match to save their life.
Be The Match Foundation® raises funds to help patients who need a marrow or umbilical cord blood transplant find a donor and receive treatment.
