I would like to invite you to sponsor the 12th annual New England Walk of Life for the Armenian
Bone Marrow Donor Registry (ABMDR) that will be taking place on Saturday, September 23,
2022, in Watertown, MA.
Part of the global network of bone marrow donor registries, ABMDR’s mission is to help Armenian
and non-Armenian patients suffering from leukemia and other life-threatening blood related
illnesses find matched, unrelated donors for bone marrow stem cell transplantation. To this end,
ABMDR is active in Armenia, US, the Middle East, the EU, and other regions with sizable Armenian
communities and runs a state-of-the-art laboratory and a bone marrow stem cell harvesting center in
The COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact our work and against all odds, we have continued our
global operation by conducting donor-search requests and tissue-typing for our patients across the
world and providing much needed support. Since the beginning of our efforts, we have provided 38
successful stem cell transplants.
The walkathon enjoys the support and cooperation of the Armenian organizations, churches, and
many local businesses. All the proceeds from the event are invested in recruiting new stem cell donor
volunteers for the registry.
Your sponsorship means a great deal to us and, to express our gratitude for your generous support, we
offer several sponsorship levels for your organization during the upcoming Walk of Life. Please see
the attached sponsorship package for details about the Walk, descriptions of sponsorship levels,
and ways to donate.
