Race Administrator & Registration
Debbie came to Scott & White in 1975 after obtaining a degree in Microbiology from Texas Tech University. Prior to coming to the Marrow Donor Program, she was a technologist in the Scott & White Tissue Culture Laboratory and later, the supervisor of the Immunology Laboratory.Debbie was named coordinator of the Marrow Donor Program when Scott & White became a donor center for the National Marrow Donor Program in 1994 and is now the program manager.
In 2003, Debbie was the first race director for the newly born Miracle Match Marathon, and continued as such for several years while the race grew like a wildfire. Passionate about her donors, she truly understands the cause for the event and works tirelessly to manage registrations, orders, bills, and to keep the rest of us in line!!!
Running MMM also turned her into a Runner! Debbie is a proud Half Marathoner!!
Wade is the man responsible for keeping you from getting lost. No one marks a course better. A Waco Firefighter Lt. for 15 years and a Miracle Match MVP for all 12 years – there would be no race without him!!
Michael keeps you safe, so be sure and meet him to say thanks!! A McLennan County Sheriff’s Deputy, Michael has been with MMM for the past 6 years. Most races pay ridiculous fees for their traffic control. Michael coordinates with the very philanthropic Sheriff’s Association so that your charitable dollar goes to Be the Match Marrow Donor Program rather than to overhead costs!

Finish Line Chair
Finish Line Chair
Started running when I was 46 years old – I’m 55 now. Miracle Match was my very first race and my first half marathon that is one of the reasons it’s a special race to me. Since then I’ve completed over 20 more half marathons, and with the training and support of the Waco Striders completed a full marathon. I’ve also fallen in love with cycling and make sure Iparticipate in the Waco Wild West bike ride every year.
The other more important reason Miracle Match is so special to me is the “Be the Match” Donor Registry. My boss Bill Goss (one of the mile marker honorees) is alive today because of a stem cell transplant. He and his wife Sandy Goss are two of the strongest and kindest people I’ve ever met.
It’s very important to me when I register for a race to know that my money is going to a good cause, I can’t think of a better one than this event.
Assistant to the Race Director

Eric Romanov, The Czar of Race Announcing, will bring you across that finish line like none other. A devoted husband and father of two daughters who are also out there volunteering at Miracle Match, Erik has run countless marathons and ultras as well as 5 full Ironmans.
