Chippewa Valley School District has partnered with DKMS, the nonprofit leading the fight against blood cancer, to host a bone marrow registration drive and help register potential lifesaving donors.

The event will take place from 4 p.m. - 9 p.m. at Cheyenne Elementary School on Tuesday, June 6. The school is located at 600 Heydenreich Rd.

According to DKMS, 70% of people suffering from blood-related illnesses must rely on donors outside their families to save their life. Swabbing your cheek is all it takes to register as a potential donor.
