HANOVER, N.H. — In conjunction with the annual Green-White spring football game, the Dartmouth football team will host a Be The Match Bone Marrow Registry Drive from 10 a.m. through 1 p.m. on Saturday, May 5. The drive will be located in a tent at Memorial Field.

The test is a simple cheek swab; no blood or needles are involved. It should take no more than 15-20 minutes for each person to register and be tested.

Get In The Game. Save A Life. (GITG) is a program designed to educate college football players and their peers about Be The Match's® mission to save lives by delivering cures to people diagnosed with life-threatening blood cancers through marrow and cord blood transplantation. Each spring GITG football teams across the country host donor registration drives on their campuses to raise awareness for and grow the Be The Match Registry® with committed members from their campus communities.

Many patients with leukemia, lymphoma and other life-threatening diseases can be treated by a bone marrow or cord blood transplant. For many of these patients, a transplant may be the best and only hope of a cure.

If you are between the ages of 18-44 and are interested in becoming a donor, contact Dino Cauteruccio at 603-646-2467 or via email at, or simply show up at Memorial Field on Saturday at Memorial Field.
