Rodney's Roadrunners

On May 11, 2019, team Rodney's Roadrunners will be participating in the MMRF Team for Cures: Atlanta 5K Walk/Run to raise awareness and funds for research of multiple myeloma, the second most common form of blood cancer.

As most of you know, I lost my Dad, Rodney Williams, to multiple myeloma in October 2012. Each year since then, I have participated in this event in order to honor him and help fund research for others affected by this disease.

I would love it if you would like to join team "Rodney's Roadrunners" in running/walking in this event on May 11th. If you are unable to participate in the actual race, I am asking for donations to help us reach our fundraising goal. Each and every gift for our team is GREATLY appreciated, and no gift is too small! Your generosity truly makes a difference, as funds raised at this event have helped to:

• Nearly triple patient survival
• Deliver ten new treatments in a decade
• Launch over 80 new clinical trials

The mission of the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (MMRF) is to find a cure for multiple myeloma by relentlessly pursuing innovation that accelerates the development of next-generation treatments to extend the lives of patients. Founded in 1998 by Kathy Giusti, a multiple myeloma patient, and her twin sister Karen Andrews as a 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization, the MMRF is a world-recognized leader in cancer research. Together with its partners, the MMRF has created the only end-to-end solution in precision medicine and the single largest genomic dataset in all cancers. The MMRF continues to disrupt the industry today, as a pioneer and leader at the helm of new research efforts. Since its inception, the organization has raised over $400 million and directs nearly 90% of the total funds to research and related programs. The MMRF is in the top 1% of all charities, having earned Charity Navigator’s 4-star rating for 16 years. To learn more, visit themmrf.org.

Please support our participation in the MMRF Team for Cures 5K Walk/Run. Your donation will have a meaningful impact on the lives of thousands of patients and their families!

Thank You!
