Posted June 25, 1997 12:00 a.m. EDT

— Many people donate blood on a regular basis knowing they can help save lives by doing so. Fewer are aware that they can help save even more by registering as a marrow donor

WRAL-TV5's Health Team will be at the Jim Graham building at the state fairgrounds Thursday from 11 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. for "Marrowthon 97" where a simple blood test will put you on a donor list. Sponsors are looking for donors between the ages of 18 and 60 who are in good health.

If you live in Cary or Durham, go to the American Red Cross facility, to register, and in Chapel Hill the site is University Mall. Marrowthon
