The MOTM team thanks the donors, volunteers, patients, family members, friends, and caregivers who made this year’s event a tremendous success.

Every year the University of Minnesota’s Adult Blood and Marrow Transplant (BMT) Program sponsors Marrow On The Move (MOTM).  MOTM brings together the BMT community—including families, friends, blood and marrow donors, and caregivers—as they celebrate the victories they have attained in fighting debilitating blood diseases. This year’s virtual event, held on July 28th, featured educational sessions hosted by faculty in the Division of Hematology, Oncology, and Transplantation. Other highlights of the 2021 event included a virtual Tot Trot, award ceremony, and inspirational patient and caregiver speeches. Through a combination of corporate and personal donations, MOTM raised approximately $20,000 for BMT research in 2021!  Please join us in 2022 for the 7th annual MOTM, hopefully to be held in person at Lake Nokomis!
