Detroit March for Marrow
Schedule of Events
BRING A NEW OR GENTLY USED BOOK TO THE WALK!
Brian White, whom we walk in honor of, was a dedicated teacher, mentor and advocate of children. To help continue his legacy we are holding a book drive to benefit children in the greater Metro Detroit area.
Please bring a new or gently used children’s book to the walk, and we will donate them to local area facilities in need.
Why We Walk
THERE IS A NEED AND WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE
THERE IS NO CURE FOR APLASTIC ANEMIA AND BONE MARROW FAILURE DISEASE.
APLASTIC ANEMIA IS A RARE DISEASE WITH ONLY about 600-900 people are diagnosed IN THE U.S.A each year.
TREATMENTS AND TRANSPLANTS CAN IN SOME CASES LEAD TO REMISSION BUT IS OFTEN ONLY TEMPORARY.
“The first step toward change is awareness. – Nathaniel Branden
