Teams entering this year's event to support

Anthony Nolan:

Every day, we match incredible individuals willing to donate their blood stem cells or bone marrow to people with blood cancer and blood disorders who desperately need lifesaving transplants.

It all began in 1974. With her three-year-old son Anthony in urgent need of a bone marrow transplant, Shirley Nolan set up the world's first register to match donors with people in desperate need. Now, we help three people each day find that lifesaving match. We also conduct world-class research into stem cell matching and transplants, so we can make sure every person in need gets the best possible treatment.

Our vision:

To save and improve the lives of everyone who needs a stem cell transplant.

Our aims:

  • To improve outcomes and quality of life for our patients.
  • To lead and influence the global transplant community in improving outcomes.
  • To deliver excellence, efficiency and transparency in our work.
