Join the MMRF as we continue to expand our program to new heights... and depths with
the Moving Mountains for Multiple Myeloma (MM4MM) Program!

On May 4-7, fourteen MMRF hikers who have been specially selected to form the Moving Mountains for Multiple Myeloma Grand Canyon Team will hike into the Grand Canyon via the Bright Angel Trail from the Southern Rim. This trek is one of the most epic hikes in the United States. With over 4,300 feet of vertical hiking down (and then UP) completed in one day, this trek also adds the obstacle of altitude and temperature change. While it might be a comfortable 75 degrees at the top of the rim at the 7 AM departure, MMRF hikers will likely encounter heat reaching 100+ degrees in the depths of the canyon. 

This team will be made up of multiple myeloma patients, caregivers, doctors, clinicians, nurses, and others connected to multiple myeloma. This is a powerful and life-changing experience as the team overcomes challenges, pushes beyond perceived limits and honors loved ones and friends living with multiple myeloma. This team is LIVING PROOF that the work being done by the MMRF, Takeda Oncology and our research partners is helping myeloma patients live longer and more active lives.  

We are proudly working with The Walking Connection, a highly-regarded outdoor adventure company which has a long standing history with the National Park System & Grand Canyon National Park, that is planning and guiding the entire excursion for our team. 

Thanks to the generous support of our sponsors, the MMRF is able to underwrite most of the travel and trekking costs of the trip. Team members agree to raise a minimum of $3,000 per person. 

Team members will be selected based on their personal connection to multiple myeloma, enthusiasm for being part of the Moving Mountains for Multiple Myeloma team, and their interest in and ability to maximize fundraising. 

Goal: $80,000
