As the daughter of a Be The Match® employee, it’s no surprise that altruism doesn’t fall too far from the tree. Seven-year-old Sophia, a member of Team Be The MatchSM and the face of this year’s campaign, has clearly learned by example. On her birthday, instead of collecting gifts for herself, Sophia chose to give back. She asked her dad what they could do to help kids that were sick and in the hospital. He reached out to Be The Match Foundation and learned about Team Be The Match.
Team Be The Match is a new program that allows anyone, anywhere the opportunity to share their passion and fundraise their way to help deliver cures for blood cancer. Sophia requested that friends and family contribute to her fundraising page in lieu of birthday gifts.
By simply setting up a fundraising page, you too can be part of our life-saving team! You can raise funds by celebrating a wedding, birthday or transplant anniversary, while reaching athletic goals, honoring a loved one or in any number of other creative ways!
