The Gonzaga Bulletin reported on a bone marrow registration drive organized by the Washington Delta Chapter of Tau Beta Pi last week. During the drive 80 students from Gonzaga University registered to become bone marrow donors. Current WA D president, Adam C. Obenberger (WA D 2014), spoke about the motivation for the drive, which constituted the club’s required service project for the year.
“It’s something that really hasn’t been done, and it’s cool to see people get involved with something like the blood drive, people really come out for that,” Obenberger said. “I was hoping to do something that was meaningful.” The goal is for this to be an annual event partnering with Be The Match and the National Marrow Donor Program.
