Join Me March 24th, 2019 in Ft. Lauderdale Huizenga Park to help raise funds and awareness in the battle against Multiple Myeloma. Many of you may know how personally this disease has touched me and my family. We are focused on a CURE for all those fighting this currently Incurable cancer. I truly feel that the MMRF and the research initiatives they are funding will soon develop a cure. I am running the 5K for those how can't and hoping to raise as much as possible to help the MMRF continue their life saving research. Please consider joining me and my team on March 24th.

If unable to join us, please consider a donation.

Thank you for considering

The MMRF is removing obstacles faster and extending lives. But we need your help.

This year, I will be participating in the MMRF Team for Cures 5K Walk/Run. 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
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 my 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!
