The Matchmaker 5k Run/Walk in New York 2017

The Icla da Silva Foundation is excited to host our 7th annual Matchmaker 5k Run/Walk in New York! Together we will unite communities across the tri-state area in support of patients in need of a bone marrow transplant.

Join us on Saturday, May 6, 2017 at Firefighters Field on Roosevelt Island for this fun-filled family friendly event!

Each year over 20,000 people in the U.S. are diagnosed with life-threatening illnesses where a marrow transplant is their best treatment option. With your support in fundraising as an individual or team, potential marrow donors are added to the Be The Match Registry, patients receive the care and support services necessary, and breakthrough research continues.

 Registration opens

11:00am: Awards ceremony
