March for Marrow Walk
in memory of Jennifer Zighelboim
For 35 years, the Aplastic Anemia and MDS International Foundation has been working to provide education, support, and hope for patients living with aplastic anemia, myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS), paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria (PNH) and related bone marrow failure diseases. Join us for a morning of fun, remembrance, and awareness at our 3rd annual March for Marrow Walk Miami. This year we move to a new walk location - HISTORIC Virginia Key Beach Park!
Help us raise awareness for bone marrow failure disease!
Make a difference, help a patient. Don't delay!
You can register for the walk online through Thursday 5/10/18, or on site on Saturday 5/12/18. Our goal is to raise $10,000 for bone marrow failure diseases.

2018 WALK HERO: JEN ZIGHELBOIM
Jennifer Zighelboim was the type of person that people looked up to, had an uncanny, innate ability to effortlessly put a smile on people’s faces, that continuously spread love throughout all situations; a true individual who showed that it’s not the days in life, but the life in the days. When she was in the hospital in 2015, she clearly stated her intention that when she got out of the hospital, she would start a walk to raise money and awareness to beat this horrible disease and because of this wish, we walk for Jen.
Our thanks to these supporters who help make this walk possible and ultimately make a difference in patients' lives.
