Welcome to My Page in honor of my Mom - I run with her spirit and hope

Join Me!

This is the third year I will be participating in the MMRF Team for Cures 5K Walk/Run in honor of my beautiful mom - who we called, and many know as Ronabelle. She fought this disease with passion and strength and always with a smile. She fought through the toughest of battles and always had hope. By running in this race I carry her hope and spirit and pay tribute to the woman responsible for making me the strong, independent, compassionate woman I am today. It's the least I can do to give back in her honor. On this day I always feel her beside me, cheering me on, reminding me to always challenge myself and be the best I can be. Make a difference, My mom was my difference. She continues to be my difference - she surrounds me with other strong, inspiring, positive people and leads me to places where I feel empowered - places like this course and event. She gives me that little extra push every day. I miss her every second of every day. Come join my team - the Ronabelles - doesn't matter the weather or conditions, the sun always shines that day. Hope to share it with you.


On this day I have committed to raising awareness and funds to accelerate finding a cure for multiple myeloma, which is the second most common blood cancer and is incurable. Your generosity truly makes a difference, as funds raised at this event in the past have helped to:

Nearly tripled patient survival
Deliver ten new treatments in a decade
Launched 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 my participation in the MMRF Team for Cures 5K Walk/Run. Come run or walk with me! Your donation will have a meaningful impact on the lives of thousands of patients and their families!

Thank You! With Much Love and Hope - Marci
