Cheekswab will be hosting a couple bone marrow drives this weekend at Grace Covenant Church (GCC) in Philadelphia, PA at their University City (UC) site. The UC site meets on the campus of UPenn in Meyerson Hall.
These bone marrow drives are in honor of Arthur Halim, a UPenn undergraduate student and GCC attendee who passed away from Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) in July 2016.
On Friday, March 17, Dan will be speaking at GCC’s Friday Night Large Group which begins at 7pm. Dan will be sharing about his own time at Penn (10 years ago!), his reflections on his time with cancer, Cheekswab, and his thoughts on Arthur’s life and legacy. Dan and Eunice will host a bone marrow drive immediately after large group in the Meyerson auditorium with an expected start time of 9:00pm.
On Sunday, March 19, Cheekswab will be hosting a much larger bone marrow drive for the 350+ attendees to GCC’s Sunday service. Dan will again speak (albeit much more briefly) during service and a group of Cheekswab volunteers will facilitate a bone marrow drive after service in rooms B2 and B3. Sunday service begins at 11:15am and the drive is expected to begin on Sunday after service, which is roughly 1:00pm.
Hope to see you there, and please spread the word!
We’ll be hosting another bone marrow drive this Sunday, 8/21, at Good News Church NYC (http://www.gncnyc.org/) immediately following the Sunday service, which starts at 5pm. We expect the drive to happen around 6:30pm or so in the basement of the venue, which is the Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd.
The church service starts at 11:00am and ends at 12:20pm, and Cheekswab will be hosting a bone marrow drive next Sunday in the lobby from 12:30-1:30pm (or as long as necessary). If you’re available and in the area, please swing by to join the lottery to save a life!
Dan will also be sharing his personal story with Cheekswab tomorrow, Sunday, July 10, at City Grace’s 11am service.
