Run or Walk with OtherHalf and help Chinese patients find their match!

OtherHalf—Chinese Stem Cell Initiative

Currently, thousands upon thousands of Chinese patients around the world are desperately searching for unrelated stem cell donors who can save their lives. OtherHalf—Chinese Stem Cell Initiative was established in 2008 to help save more patients' lives by raising awareness of the dire need to increase the number of stem cell donations to Chinese patients through education and recruitment of quality donors into the stem cell donor network.

Walk or run to fundraise for OtherHalf on Sunday, October 20th, 2013 at the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon. Register online to participate in the event as OtherHalf team member and encourage your family and friends to pledge their support for Chinese patients in need of a donor for transplant. Money raised will enable OtherHalf to expand its outreach program to target people 17–35 years of age and help more patients in need.
