Northeast Middle School Wellness Carnival Coming in February


The National Marrow Donor Program® (NMDP) and the Be The Match Foundation® are nonprofit organizations located here in Northeast Minneapolis, dedicated to creating an opportunity for all patients to receive the bone marrow or umbilical cord blood transplant they need, when they need it. Every year, thousands of people of all ages are diagnosed with leukemia and other life-threatening diseases. Many of them will die unless they get a bone marrow or cord blood transplant from a matching donor. Seventy percent of people do not have a donor in their family and depend on our Be The Match Registry® to find a match to save their life.
The registry -- called the Be The Match Registry -- has grown to 9 million donors and more than 185,000 searchable umbilical cord blood units, the largest and most racially and ethnically diverse registry of its kind in the world.
Be The Match Foundation's work with families, corporations and other partners like you has raised millions of dollars for patients in need. With your support, Be The Match Foundation will continue to attract, engage and motivate people who want to save a life.
For more information on how you can join the registry, visit the information page through Be The Match here.
For additional information on transplants and donations visit The National Marrow Donor Program here.

Winter Warm-Up for Northeast Middle School

WarmUpPosterletterSz.jpgThe theater program at Northeast Middle School has been growing over the past five years and has quickly become a very popular extracurricular activity for students. The dedicated staff and parents at Northeast Middle School would like to invite you to the annual Winter Warm-Up to help raise funds to keep the theater program vibrant. This annual event has ensured that more than 60 students each year have had the opportunity to work on a full-scale musical.

This year's Winter Warm-Up will feature live music, prizes and a silent auction, not to mention fantastic food and beverages. Proceeds from this event will go to funding this year's production of Alice in Wonderland at Northeast Middle School. Bring your friends and neighbors to this event and help keep the arts alive in Northeast schools.
