Hello Athletes and Friends!

Lily’s League is back for our 11th year in a row participating in the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (MMRF) Team for Cures 5K Walk/Run- This year in the beautiful Marina Green of San Francisco. This year’s race will take place on March 31st, 2019. Race starts at 12:30 pm. All runners, 4-legged friends, walkers, and loved ones welcome.

As many of you already know, I have been organizing this team in honor of my Grandma Lily who was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma in 2007.

When the team was originally formed, we ran in support and strength. Today, we run in memory.

Grandma Lily lost her battle with Multiple Myeloma shortly after our first run, but her legacy and spirit has been carrying us through the finish line for the past ten years. Nothing touched her more than the pictures and stories I shared with her following that first run. Although she is no longer physically with us, her contagious spirit, optimism and joy for life will live on forever.

I am inviting you all to join my team in support of not just Grandma Lily, but as supporters of the movement and the organization as a whole. As the world's number-one private funder of multiple myeloma research, the MMRF has raised over $330 million since its inception and directs 90% of total budget to research and related programming.

This amazing group of Lily's League runners and walkers 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 of time and fundraising truly makes a difference, as funds raised at this event have helped to:

Nearly tripled patient survival
Deliver ten new treatments in a decade
Launched over 60 new clinical trials

I know everyone has full plates, so please do not feel obligated to raise money outside of the registration fee (also a donation!). You can, of course, raise as little or as much as you'd like, but simply coming together as a team is special enough. Also, did you know that many of Silicon Valley's companies offer a matching gift programs and will match charitable contributions made by their employees.

Find out if your employer offers this benefit! Visit walkrun.themmrf.org/san-francisco19/Static/Matching-Gifts or ask your Human Resources Department!

Per tradition, brunch and bubbly to follow.

Fellow athletes, friends, family and neighbors ALWAYS welcome. The more the merrier so please pass along the invite. Let's make this run the biggest one yet!

Peace, Love and Tradition,
Sarah Rose
