EBSC Community Invited to Rutgers Women's Soccer Spring Game; Bone Marrow Drive/Awareness
Rutgers sophomore Maggie Morash is inviting all members and extended family and friends to come watch the Scarlet Knights host Princeton on Friday, April 25, at Yurcak Field. Kickoff is 6 p.m. Admission is free.
In a letter to the East Brunswick Soccer Club, Morash explained why the game is so important:
This past Christmas, my 7-year-old cousin, Mason, was diagnosed with severe aplastic anemia, which means his bone marrow does not make any functional red blood cells, white blood cells, or platelets. The only cure is a bone marrow transplant. Mason lives on blood transfusions while he waits to find a match.
I'm using our spring game to spread awareness about the disease and the need for people to join the bone marrow registry. We'll also be advertising for the bone marrow drive that we're hosting as part of Rutgers Day on Saturday, April 26.
We'll be giving away t-shirts specially designed for the game, and all the girls on the team will be around after the game to talk to the kids and sign autographs. Also, admission to the game is free!
I hope some of the teams and members of the club can make it out to support the team and Mason.
