Turkey Trot Volunteers Needed

It’s November, which means it’s time for Bluffsview’s annual turkey trot. We need a lot of volunteers to make this day run smoothly, and there are a few spots left for volunteers to help. Please consider signing up for a slot at SignUpGenius.

There are slots all day long for people to tally lap tags as the trotters do laps, hand out water, set up, and total tallies at the end of the day. Please consider spending a small (or large!) portion of your day with us. We also have a few spots for volunteers to help with lap tag prep before the event.

If you have any questions please contact Jenny Lee, jennybeth.lee@gmail.com or Chandra Tweedle, chandradawn@yahoo.com.

Help a Bluffsview mom find a bone marrow match!

Those who attended September’s PTA meeting learned that a Bluffsview mom is in need of a bone marrow transplant. Mrs. Fox asked us to share information about the Be The Match Registry®, which could help her and others who need donors.

be the matchThe first step to being someone’s cure is to join  Be The Match Registry®. If you are between the ages of 18-44, committed to donating to any patient in need, and meet the health guidelines, you can join online. Be the Match will send you a cheek swab kit in the mail within 3-7 business days. Simply swab your cheek, return the sample in the mail, and complete your registration.

If you are between the ages of 18 and 44, patients especially need you. Research shows that cells from younger donors lead to more successful transplants. Doctors request donors in the 18-44 age group 85% of the time.
