About the event :
The third Saturday of September every year is observed as World Marrow donors Day (WMDD) to honour the 30 Million donors worldwide. In the honour of selfless donors DATRI has organised a Cycle ride from Ticel Bio park to Mahabalipuram on the 3rd of September 2017.
To mark the day, DATRI has been conducting "Cycle to Gift a Life” since the past two years. The event had seen tremendous response from both professional and amateur cyclists.This is the 3rd consecutive year for DATRI and we want it a hattrick.
DATRI is working towards facilitating Blood Stem Cells to the patients in need. We need to build strong willing donor base for each region in India as ours is a diverse nation. This ride helps in creating a buzz, en-route and achieve maximum awareness possible.
For many suffering from fatal blood diseases like Leukemia, Lymphoma, Thalassemia etc., a blood stem cell transplant is the last hope of survival. Such patients need a donor with a matching genetic type. Only 1 in 10,000 to 1 in over Million find a genetic match.
