This Sunday, February 12, please join Boca Raton magazine at the Gift of Life Bone Marrow Foundation’s second annual 5K “Walk for Life”. 

Headquartered in our own Boca Raton, Gift of Life is one of the nation’s public bone marrow, blood stem cell and umbilical cord blood registries. These registries help find transplants for children and adults suffering from various life-threatening diseases.

According to the Gift of Life’s website, last year's walk added more than 1,000 new donors to the registry, which has resulted in 14 matches for patients in need. 

Following the 5K walk this weekend, there will be food, music and giveaways. You could win an iPad, signed sports memorabilia, resort package and more.

Register before the walk online for $25. Registration opens at 8 a.m. on day of the walk and costs $30. You can also make a contribution on behalf of our team, or an individual walker.
