stunt run Charity
The 5K ThrillSeeker Stunt Run, in cooperation with Guardian Angel Council, has partnered with Be The Match®. For people with life-threatening blood cancers—like leukemia and lymphoma—or other diseases, a cure exists. Be The Match connects patients with their donor match for a life-saving marrow or umbilical cord blood transplant. People can contribute to the cure as a member of the Be The Match Registry®, financial contributor or volunteer. Be The Match provides patients and their families one-on-one support, education, and guidance before, during and after transplant.
The thrill of a lifetime is having the opportunity to save another person's life and through this partnership, participants can do exactly that!

About Guardian Angel Council
Guardian Angel Council (GAC) is a 501(c)(3) that exists to create awareness for the National Bone Marrow Donor Program, specifically through the Be The Match® Registry. There is an ever-growing need for marrow donors, as there is a 1-in-4 chance of having a sibling be a match, and about 70% of patients in need of a transplant do not have a suitable donor in their family. GAC pays special attention to increasing minority participation in the registry - minorities make up only 30% of potential donors, and patients are more likely to find that life-saving match from donors of their own ethnic background.
