Proceeds from Jeremy McGrath’s Offroad to benefit Bethematch.org
Professional motocross legend Jeremy McGrath will be donating his portion of profits from his new downloadable game, Jeremy McGrath’s Offroad, to the bone marrow donor program Bethematch.org.
The news comes in response to Jeremy’s wife Kim finding a marrow donor as a treatment for her recent Leukemia diagnosis thanks in part to the Be The Match program.
After Kim’s diagnosis in May, Jeremy sprang into action and proceeded to spearhead close to 40 marrow drives and fundraisers resulting in more than 4,000 people tested for possible inclusion within the Registry and more than a quarter of a million dollars raised. Donating his profits from his game is just the latest step in his involvement.
“First, thank you again to everyone who has helped, donated, gotten tested and sent well-wishes to our family. Your responses to my initial call to action have been incredible and the support and love just seems to continue to pour in,” said Jeremy McGrath. “The fact that Kim found a match is really great news for us, but it is our hope that people will still get tested and join the Be the Match Registry. I would also ask that companies that have charitable donation programs and those in the position to do something, please think about making a donation to Be The Match at any time throughout the year. This organization provides a service that literally saves lives every day of the year…it’s pretty amazing.”
