Jeana Moore has walked across America. Why? As an expression of gratitude to all those who helped her granddaughter, Jada Bascom, to survive and thrive after being born with acute myeloid leukemia. Jada and Jeana were featured in the Winter 2010 issue of Tricycle—read more about them here. For those in the New York area who would like to help celebrate Jeana’s accomplishment and all of her hard work registering people for the National Marrow Donor Program’s “Be The Match Registry,” there will be a gathering at the northwest corner of Central Park at 10:30 a.m., Thursday, January 27. The congregated will join Jeana for a walk through the park—the last leg of her journey—and the walk will be followed by a marrow donor drive at Park Central Hotel from noon until 3:00 p.m.
Some of the Tricycle team will be in attendance and we would love to see you there.
