Students at Texas A&M University-Kingsville will have the chance to get on the bone marrow donor registry Monday-Wednesday right there on their campus.

A company called GenCure will be hosting an online marrow registry, which will be the first in the nation to include an all-digital registry.

It will be the third time the university will host the event, and more than 1,400 people have signed up.
