Alex Morrison, one of the co-founders of Race Against Blood Cancer caught up with Natasha Hinde from the Huffington Post.
Check out how Alex and the team were touched by the cancer diagnosis of a close friend and the ambition of Race Against Blood Cancer to give every blood cancer patient an equal chance of surviving, thanks to finding a potentially lifesaving donor match.

On Friday 10th July, The Shropshire Golf club will host 100 golfers in the day and 250 guests in the evening, for the private launch of Race Against Blood Cancer.
The event is invitation only and is being attended by close friends and family of the team involved with setting it up. As part of the evening’s entertainment is a DJ, live singer, silent auction and quiz with some great prizes on offer.
The team will also look to use the opportunity to raise awareness of the shortage of stem cell and bone marrow donors from various ethnic groups and to encourage those in attendance to register on the night as a potential donor. A huge thanks to everyone who has helped with the planning of the event, in particular Joe Bates for leading the charge & Matt Lea for organising the golf day.
Please keep a look out for the photos and an update on how it all goes.
