Industry News: Team DKMS Forms Team to Battle Blood Cancer

With the 2013 racing season kicking off, David Pergande, Steven Clark and Marisa Campbell have joined forces to form Team DKMS (www.teamdkms.com).  David Pergande and Steven Clark have over 40 years of motorsports racing combined, with 10 years in karting combined; Marisa Campbell enters her rookie season in karting.

Returning in 2013 to partner with Team DKMS is Delete Blood Cancer DKMS (www.deletebloodcancer.org).   Delete Blood Cancer DKMS leads the fight to delete blood cancer by empowering people to take action, give bone marrow and save lives. With over 3 million registered bone marrow donors worldwide, Delete Blood Cancer DKMS is the largest bone marrow donor center in the world.  Thousands of patients with leukemia and other life-threatening diseases depend on finding matching donors who can save their life. Patients need donors who are a close genetic match. Even with a registry of millions, 6 out of 10 patients NEVER receive the lifesaving transplant they need. Donors of all ethnicities are needed if we are going to change this.  As a way to support the mission of the charity, at select karting events, Team DKMS will have a booth setup for fans and participants to register for the National Bone Marrow Registry.  Our number one goal in 2013 is to register at least 2000 race fans and participants for Delete Blood Cancer DKMS.

Team DKMS has also kicked off 2013 with strong sponsorship support from Loctite, Silkolene and Denso.  Team DKMS rolls into action over the next few months with participation in the Rotax Challenge of Americas and Lone Star Grand Prix competing in Rotax and TAG events.

About Team-DKMS: Based out of Texas, the race team mission is to Delete Blood Cancer. The team will compete in national karting events to bring blood cancer awareness to motorsports participants and fans.  For sponsorship opportunities and more information on Team DKMS, visit www.teamdkms.com or contact Steven Clark by email to teamdkms@gmail.com
