Be among the first to see Winfrey Point's new face lift and at the same time help improve White Rock Lake. All proceeds goes towards increasing security lighting around the lake. There will be live bands at each mile, incredible race packet goodies, and REAL food at the finish line.

Coordinator: Lily Qian (Run Captain)
The race starts at 8:00 AM, which means that APEX runners will should arrive at 7:30 AM. It is highly recommended that runners/volunteers car pool to reduce traffic congestion around the lake. Individuals will pay their own entry fees. Hopefully, we can register runners in bulk and therefore have Lily or another run captain pick up the race packets (April 28 - April 30 @ Luke's Locker Dallas) for everyone.

Angela Lang (Aid Station Volunteers)
We are looking for 10-15 volunteers to help at the White Rock n Roll Run. Volunteers are needed to monitor the courses and to help at the water stops. This will allow us the opportunity to do some service while cheering on our APEX runners.

05/08: Volunteer Opportunity: Asian Festival Bone Marrow Registry Drive

Date: May 8, 2004
Time: 11am to 6pm
Location : Annette Strauss Square
Contact : Julie Hwang j-hwang1@ti.com or 214-734-3133

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED to register potential bone marrow and stem cell donors at the Asian Festival on May 8. Volunteers should try to arrive at 10am for training, and do not need to stay the entire day. Please come out and help! Volunteers will be handing out brochures, and asking people to register as donors.

Over 30,000 children and adults each year, just in the U.S., are diagnosed with life-threatening diseases such as lymphoma or leukemia. In many of these cases, their only hope for survival is a bone marrow or blood stem cell transplant. There is national registry of potential bone marrow donors, where patients can search for a suitable match, however there is a great shortage of potential donors from ethnic minorities. Patients searching for a match outside their immediate family are more likely to find a match from someone in their same ethnicity or race. As of July 2003, there were only 300,000 donors of Asian descent registered in the entire United States. The number of potential Caucasian donors is over 10 times that number.

Also take into consideration the fact that the US National Bone Marrow Donor Program is the largest and most diverse in the world. There are only 100,000 registered donors in all of China, less in other countries in Asia. The chance of Asian patients finding a match outside their immediate family is incredibly low with the number of donors available.

Please help increase the numbers of potential donors and improve the odds! We should do all that we can to help register potential donors. Donor registry is free for minorities and only requires a small blood sample (less than two tablespoons) and consent to be in the registry. Consent to be in the registry is not consent to be a donor. If a match is made, potential donors need to go through more tests and they may change their minds at any time.
