It takes minutes to join the registry

Thank you for helping us save lives through the McKesson Marrow Drive. Our goal is to add 5,000 potential donors to the marrow registry, and we’re more than halfway there!

The more people who join, the more lives we can save. That’s why we’re encouraging you to help us grow the registry. For every five people you refer who join the registry, you earn a chance to win a $5,000 grant to the school or charity of your choice!

Here’s how the challenge works:
  • Refer five or more friends or family to sign up online at
  • When your friends and family sign up, they’ll be asked who referred them. Make sure they include your name and email.
  • This challenge ends Wednesday, January 31, 2018. We’ll announce the winner the week of February 4, in honor of World Cancer Day.

For questions, contact Sarah Tanner at the McKesson Foundation. Thank you for your support.

The McKesson Marrow Drive is sponsored by the McKesson Foundation in partnership with Gift of Life Marrow Registry. U.S. residents, ages 18-60, are eligible to join.

The grant recipient must be a 501(c)(3) organization and meet McKesson Foundation guidelines. To qualify as a referral that counts toward the drawing for the $5,000 grant for charity, you must request a donor registration kit by January 31, 2018.
