On June 11, Athena and the Mixed Marrow team, including Alexandria Taylor Hernandez the donor in Mixed Match, registered donors at the Mixed Remixed festival in Los Angeles.  Mixed Remixed is a “a film, book & performance festival celebrating stories of the Mixed and multiracial experience” and has been supportive of Mixed Marrow drives since its inception.
