Dear Friends and Family,
Emilie and I will be participating in the Newport Half Marathon in October to raise funds and awareness for the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (MMRF) Team For Cures.
The work ahead of us?? Training for this event is a big challenge, this will be our first and certainly not our last half marathon, but it's nothing compared to the challenges faced by patients with multiple myeloma.
We lost my mother Linda Cunningham in November of 2016 and there's not a day that doesn't go by that I don't think about her. As I run in remembrance of my mom, I find myself also running for Kris L who is just beginning her journey. I am truly honored, humbled and greatful for this opportunity to fight for a friend and keep my mom's memory alive.
Multiple myeloma is the second most common form of blood cancer and, sadly, has one of the lowest five-year relative survival rates of all cancers. But while there is no cure, great progress is being made.
The Goal: Raise $6,000 for the MMRF's life-extending cancer research!
Please support my participation in the Newport Half Marathon benefiting the MMRF. We have made a commitment to raise at least a total of $6,000, and we need your help to get there. Please contribute whatever you can. It all adds up! Consider sponsoring us $5,$10,$15, $20 a mile..it's only 13.1 miles!!
Please take this opportunity to give back and support this game-changing cancer organization.
