BE THE MATCH
The National BONE MARROW registry will be at the event - Connecting patients with life-saving bone marrow donors
Every three minutes, one person is diagnosed with a blood cancer. Every 10 minutes, someone dies from a blood cancer. That’s more than six people each hour, or 148 people each day. Patients are searching for a cure. It could be you.
Be The Match Registry® is operated by the National Marrow Donor Program® (NMDP), a nonprofit organization that’s dedicated to creating an opportunity for all patients to receive the marrow or umbilical cord blood transplant they need, when they need it. It is the largest and most diverse donor registry in the world. Our partnerships with international and cooperative registries provide doctors with access to nearly 24.5 million potential donors and more than 622,000 cord blood units worldwide.
We need donors like you to help be the cure -
BE The Match Staff and Volunteers will be on hand to give you information, answer your questions and help you join the registry. Joining the registry is voluntary and is not required to be a participant. This Expo and Bone marrow Matching event is FREE and OPEN to the Public! Find Out More Today
Islander Sports Foundation
Islander Sports Foundation, formerly called the Coronado High School All Sports Booster Club, was founded in 1994 and obtained of 501 (c)(3) non-profit status in 1996. The ISF mission statement is:
‘Helping All Students Become Champions Through Sports."
Over the past 15 years, district funding at CHS for sports has not increased, while the number of sports sharing the funding has risen. Combined with the additions of new interscholastic sports, the funding pie, which has not grown, is actually smaller by the time it gets to each coach.
ISF serves as the collector of athletic registration monies for the CHS Athletic Department to ensure adequate funding exists to remain successful and competitive. ISF also serves as a financial umbrella for the CHS Booster Clubs. Additionally, in 2001, ISF took over the Coronado Middle School sports program, which was being discontinued by the district due to lack of funding from the State. The driving force behind the ISF-MIddle School Program (MSP) is the belief that interscholastic competition is important at the middle school age level, which will also help to better serve the CHS Athletic Program.
