DOYLESTOWN (PA) – The Delaware Valley College football team will sponsor a Bone Marrow Donor Registry Drive (ages 18 to 44) on Saturday, April 26 from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. in room 200 of the College's new Life Sciences Building.

A bone marrow screening is a quick and simple process as only a cheek swap is necessary, but that little test can ultimately save lives. There is no charge for the test. Delaware Valley's registry drive will take place during A-Day, an annual event that attracts thousands of area residents to the campus.

The registry drive by Delaware Valley is a part of a nation-wide effort involving numerous college football programs. Villanova University head football coach Andy Talley has spearheaded the program for nearly 20 years and has raised awareness about the need for marrow donors as well as recruiting thousands of members to the registry. New Delaware Valley head coach Duke Greco and his Aggies are proud to play a role in this.

"It's a great opportunity for our football team to give back and it can eventually help save someone's life," Greco said. "We decided to have the drive take place during A-Day because it such a great and tradition campus and community event and it could lead to a lot of people registering."
