Become a Sponsor! 


The Race for Awareness, a 5K Run/Walk, began in 2008. Over the past several years, thousands of runners and walkers have participated and hundreds of new bone marrow donors have been recruited for the national registry. The Kiwanis Club of Pinecrest/Palmetto Bay is once again the Presenting Sponsor for this event. This is an exciting event catering to a wide group of persons in our community. The race is for serious runners as well as hobbyists. It is also an opportunity for businesses in the community to promote their products and services by becoming a sponsor.

Team up with us, and earn money for your organization!

We have a great opportunity for local charities to partner with the Barbara Gordon Leukemia and Bone Marrow Association (BGLBMA) to help us spread the word about bone marrow donations and also earn money for your organization.

Our primary awareness-building and fundraising event is the annual 5K Run/Walk for Awareness presented in conjunction with the Kiwanis Club of Pinecrest/Palmetto Bay. Our 9th Annual 5K Run/Walk will be held on Saturday, November 5 2016. Registration starts at 7:30 a.m. and the race starts at 9:00 a.m. We encourage teams and individuals to participate in this 5K Run/Walk, supporting the cause while getting fit and having fun.

This year, we will reward teams of 20 members and over by making a grant to the team’s selected charity of 25% of the total registration fee paid by the team. To qualify for this offer, the selected charity must be a registered 501(c)(3) organization. For more information, call us at 305-517-3981 or email to  bglbma@outlook.com.
