• The DDD program held its first annual “Dig Us Out of the Donor Deficit” volleyball tournament at O’Leaver’s Volleyball on May 4, 2013. A total of 18 volleyball teams entered the tournament and a total of $1,903 was raised, most of which was donated to Be The Match.
  • The Decreasing the Donor Deficit program held two bone marrow registration drives on November 13 and 14, 2013. The purpose of this event was to raise awareness during the national bone marrow awareness month and to register as many potential donors as possible through ‘Be The Match’. The registration drives were held in the Durham Outpatient Center and in the Sorrell Center for Health Science Education, where a total of 180 individuals became registered donors by doing a simple cheek swab. This is the 3rd year that Be the Match are donating the kits for our project ($100 value each), with the goal to increase awareness and encourage student participation.
