This Monday, Nov. 19, we had the honor and privilege of welcoming special guests to our field! The Gift of Life Marrow Registry, which facilitates transplants for children and adults suffering from life-threatening illnesses, ran a swab drive at Kraft last night. While they enjoyed watching the action on the field, many of our players joined the registry to be bone marrow donors and potentially save lives! We were so glad to take part in this incredible opportunity, and encourage all to get more involved. For more information, visit the Gift of Life website: https://www.giftoflife.org/
