As you may recall from previous blog posts over the years, Enoch Office is a big supporter of There Goes My Hero, an organization dedicated to raising money to fight Leukemia. Founded in in 2008 by Erik Sauer, a leukemia survivor who successfully received a bone marrow transplant, There Goes My Hero provides support for patients and families through various programs and events, like Hero-Palooza.
Did you know that just 30% of Leukemia patients are able to find a bone marrow donor?
Hero-Palooza is an annual event that seeks to match Leukemia patients with donors and change the above statistic. This wonderful event – featuring a 5K run/walk, a bike tour for cyclists, live music, a Beer Garden (plus wine), and, of course, a Crabfeast and Cookout – will take place on Saturday, September 20, 2014 from 7:00am – 3:00pm at Oregon Ridge Park in Hunt Valley, Maryland. Register Now or Buy tickets to the Crabfeast! There is truly something for everyone.
Net proceeds from HERO-PALOOZA benefit There Goes My Hero’s mission to providing hope and nourishment to leukemia patients and their families. For more information, please visit theregoesmyhero.org!
“Our mission is to restore hope to Leukemia patients and their families!”
Enoch Office participates in honor and recognition of its friend, Jenn Aparicio, wife of WNST’s Nestor Aparicio, who is well on her way to recovery after a bone marrow transplant.
We hope you will participate in this great event, but more importantly, get swabbed! Ten minutes of your time, might save a life. Every day over 6,000 men, women and children desperately search the Be The Match Registry® (operated by the National Marrow Donor Program [NMDP]) for a life-saving bone marrow donor. Yet, only 30% are able to find a matching donor. You can make a difference.
