Lace Up 4 Life supports the Gulf Coast Marrow Donor Program. It is our mission to educate and register donors for the Be The Match® Registry, to promote awareness of the life-saving need for marrow or peripheral blood stem cell donations from adult donors to patients awaiting transplant, and to raise funds for donor testing, typing and recruitment in the Gulf Coast region.
Every year, more than 12,000 patients are diagnosed with life-threatening blood cancers, like leukemia and lymphoma, or other diseases for which a marrow transplant from an unrelated donor may be their best or only hope for a cure. Seventy percent of all patients who need a transplant are unable to find one within their family. Texas ranks number 1 in the nation for patients searching for a match, as well as transplants facilitated.
Sorry! Online registration for this event is now closed.
You may still sign up on race morning from 6:30 am - 7 am.
You can download the registration form and waiver and bring it with you the morning of the run.
Race is rain or shine!
