Walk, Run, Donate, JOIN US!

Be the one to SAVE A LIFE

OtherHalf—Chinese Stem Cell Initiative strives to close the gap of Chinese under-representation in the global stem cell donor registry. We conduct stem cell drives and sustained awareness campaigns to deflect myths and educate the public about stem cell donation in the Chinese Canadian community.

Currently, it is estimated that thousands of Chinese patients around the world are desperately searching for unrelated stem cell donors who can save their lives. We can make a difference. By supporting OtherHalf at this year's Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon — through walking or running whilst fundraising for us, or simply by making a donation — your efforts will go towards helping patients in need.

Join us and help us reach our goal of $50,000 to save more lives!
