#TeamKhaleda Workout

This Saturday, February 20th, my gym, Burn Boot Camp, is hosting an awesome fundraiser for my niece, Khaleda.  Khaleda is currently 20 days post-bone marrow transplant.  This is her second bone marrow transplant, after her first one in December, failed.  


Her biological brother is her donor and was able to travel from Afghanistan with his mom, for a last minute transplant.  This fundraiser is to help offset the expenses associated with the family travel, interpreter travel & expenses while they are in the United States.
We also have the opportunity for those in the community to put their name on the National Bone Marrow Registry through Be The Match.  If you are between the ages of 18-44, you can have your cheek swabbed at the event to be placed on the registry.  Donors are needed!   70% of patients needing a transplant do not have a donor in their family.  The registration is quick, painless, and easy!
The #TeamKhaleda fundraising event begins at noon on Saturday, February 20th at the Denver Burn Boot Camp location:  7558 NC Hwy 73 Denver, NC 28037
The event will be a family-friendly workout for all ages!  Childcare will also be provided.  It is $10 for adults and $5 for children, which includes an event t-shirt. We encourage everyone to attend the event – to either participate or cheer on others while they workout!
If you are unable to attend the event, please post a photo of your workout on Saturday, with the #teamkhaleda, in support of #TeamKhaleda event!
