Los Angeles 2017 March for Marrow 5K Run & Walk, April 29, 2017

The 8th annual Los Angeles March for Marrow 5K Run & Walk, a fundraising and awareness event to benefit the AAMDSIF, will take place on Saturday, April 29, 2017 at Shoreline Village in Long Beach, CA, with the Queen Mary and the beautiful marina in full view. It will be a day of fun connecting with fellow patients and families.

The event will include:
  • March for Marrow Walk
  • March for Marrow 5K Run
  • Group photo
  • Silent auction
  • Celebrity speakers
  • Awards
  • Moment of Remembrance
  • Art projects for kids
  • Music
  • Be The Match marrow donor signups
  • Lunch and refreshments
Marrowforums members are invited to register for the event and/or donate to the fundraiser via the Team Marrowforums page, and to help spread the word about this annual fundraiser. 100% of all donations through Team Marrowforums go directly to the AAMDSIF.


We will walk or run along the scenic marina in Shoreline Village. Walkers can choose either the 1-mile or 2-mile route.

Onsite registration begins at 7:00am for the 5K Run and 8:15am for the Walk. The 5K Run starts at 8:00am. The program will begin at 9:00am and the Walk will begin at 10:00am.

The registration fee is $30 per person for the Walk ($20 for age 12 and under), $30 for the 5K Run ($20 for age 14 and under), or $40 for both events. Virtual Walkers (supporters who won't be at the event) are the same price: $30.

Each Walker and Virtual Walker is encouraged to set a personal fundraising goal and invite friends and family members to sponsor you online.

The 2017 Los Angeles March for Marrow took place on a perfect Southern California Day, with patients, caregivers, and supporters coming together for fun, exercise, camaraderie, and of course awareness and fundraising.

Runners in 5K strived for personal bests. Teams walked in groups carrying their team signs, along the shore next to the Queen Mary.
