Anyone interested in registering with the National Marrow Donor Program is invited to join the Chattanooga Seminole Club on Saturday, from 10 a.m.-1 p.m., as part of the FSU Alumni Association’s third annual Seminole Service Day. The Club will be hosting a “Be the Match” Bone Marrow Registry Drive at the Hamilton Pointe Apartment complex clubhouse in Chattanooga. For address and other information, you can email email@example.com or see the “ChattaNoles – Chattanooga Seminole Club” on Facebook.
Potential bone marrow donors are usually between the ages of 18 – 44 and must be free from a certain list of circumstances and diseases. All that is required to register as a potential donor is a little paperwork and a cheek swab. Any further involvement is contingent upon a match to a candidate. For more details on registering, you can find information at www.bethematch.org.
Donations will also be accepted to help offset the administrative costs incurred by Be the Match registry to accept, catalog, and maintain the registry database. To donate, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to be directed to a Team page for the drive.
This event is one of many being held by alumni clubs and chapters around the country for the Third Annual Seminole Service Day — the FSU Alumni Association’s coordinated day of community service. The Chattanooga Seminole Club is the only Club in Tennessee to participate in each of the three annual events.
