LEWISBURG, Pa. – The Bucknell football team is set to participate in the Andy Talley Bone Marrow Foundation's inaugural Get in the Game Team Challenge.

By pledging a donation towards every point the Bison score in their showdown against Sacred Heart this Saturday at Christy-Mathewson Memorial Stadium, you support bone marrow drives and help save lives.

Visit PledgeIt.org/Bucknell-Football-Get-In-The-Game-Save-A-Life-Team-Challenge to make your pledge.

Previously, the Bison football team sponsored five "Be the Match" bone marrow registry drives through the National Marrow Donor Program and its Be The Match Foundation, non-profit organizations dedicated to creating an opportunity for all patients to receive the bone marrow or umbilical cord blood transplant they need, when they need it.

The Andy Talley Bone Marrow Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Its mission is to increase the odds of finding lifesaving donors for patients in need of a marrow transplant by registering young, committed donors to the Be The Match Registry. It was founded in 2010 by Villanova head football coach Andy Talley.
