Saturday will mark the sixth annual “Get in the Game, Save a Life” bone marrow registry hosted by the SUNY Cortland football team.

Head Football Coach Dan MacNeill encourages people to head down to the Corey Union building on the Cortland campus from noon to 3pm.

MacNeill says the registration process is fairly simple, and a bone marrow donation helps fight many diseases, such as leukemia.

In 2012, linebacker John Stephens donated marrow to a young girl in California with leukemia, which ended up saving her life.

In many cases, there’s a 1 in 80,000 chance that a registered donor will be a match.
