Updates & Information from Be the Match.
Hello HOSA Chapters,
Since 2020, you have raised almost $480,000 in financial support, added 4,300 people to the registry, and inspired over 1,200 teens to pre-register before they turn 18. On behalf of the patients and families we serve, thank you! We are thrilled to welcome you to another of saving even more lives.
REGISTER YOUR CHAPTER’S TEAM PAGE FOR 2023-2024
In order to reset your annual chapter points to zero, you must register one chapter team page each membership year. Follow these easy steps:
Visit BeTheMatch.org/HOSAChapters and select REGISTER.
If you registered a page in the past, log in to your account first. If you are new, create your account and continue to the next step.
Select the ONE Participant Type that aligns with your role:
Advisor or Team Captain
Only ONE person per chapter can create a TEAM.
Chapter Team Member
Chapter members may JOIN their chapter’s team page.
You may fundraise on your own without a chapter team.
During this registration process, you will have the opportunity to request a join keyword to use as you add new people to the Be The Match Registry®. You may also continue to use your current join keyword. Make sure to add your chapter’s join keyword to your chapter’s page. This is the only way to ensure you receive proper credit.
