Registration is open for the Icla da Silva MatchMaker 5K in NYC.
This is our 9th annual 5K Run/Walk in NYC. It will take place on Saturday, May 18, 2019.
All proceeds help us add more potential life-savers to the #BeTheMatch bone marrow registry. Donations also enable us to assist more patients in their battle against life-threatening diseases like leukemia, lymphoma and sickle cell.
This year, the run will take place in the beautiful Flushing Meadows Corona Park in the Northern part of Queens. The park has been home to two World’s Fairs and now the Icla da Silva MatchMaker 5k.
In the spirit of helping diverse communities in their fight with various blood cancers, register today and run or walk “around the globe” with us.
You can run by yourself, but you will never be alone.
The Icla da Silva Foundation has been recruiting bone marrow donors and supporting patients in need for 27 years.
Join a team, or start your own. Help us raise funds and have fun doing it.
