One of the ways in which SFS – Marrow Donor Registry (SFSMDR) promotes its work, that is, raising the awareness of becoming a potential marrow donor, are precisely the donor actions. They are performed outside the registry offices in collaboration with other associations or individuals who want to assist in the process of recruiting new potential donors. At the donation actions, SFSMDR staff, along with volunteers, present the possibility of joining the registry, explain its functioning, and the possibility of saving someone’s life.
The first donor action was performed in Krushevo. As part of the Krushevo Trail Challenge which took place from 27th to 29th of May. Organization was in the hands of “Orienteering Club ZLATOVRV”. At the international outdoor sport event, participants had the opportunity to compete in four races, three for adults and one for children, all in the vicinity of Krushevo. Scientific Foundation SPIROSKI was sponsor of the children’s race.
We are honored to be part of this event and to have the opportunity to support the sport and motivate the youngest to continue to nurture the sports spirit.
We congratulate the organizers for the successful organization, we congratulate all the participants in the races, and we thank the new potential donors for their humane gesture.
