CHRISTOPHER'S CHALLENGE - ROCHESTER, NEW YORK
 
 
Christopher's Challengeong> is named in honor of Christopher Costello, a young man from Webster, New York, who was suffering from leukemia and in need of a bone marrow transplant.  In order to increase the number of people in the Bone Marrow Registry and find suitable bone marrow donors, Christopher's Challenge was established.  Through Christopher's Challenge, the initial blood testing saw over 1000 people from the Rochester community added to the National Marrow Donor Program.
Christopher's Challenge is a charitable fund established in 1998 in order to continue the lifesaving work of bone marrow transplants.  The purpose of the fund is to pay for the typing of samples for individuals willing to become potential donors through the National Marrow Donor Program, as well as other costs associated with bone marrow transplants.
