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. All teams will be made up of multiple myeloma patients, caregivers, doctors, nurses, and clinicians, in addition to loved ones who climb to honor a patient who is living or who has lost their battle with this difficult disease.

Mount Fuji: July 16-21, 2017 LEARN MORE
Sixteen hikers will be selected to take part in this two-day hike taking on Japan's highest mountain. Hikers tackle this epic volcano, which reaches 12,289 feet, while experiencing the beauty and culture of Japan. MM4MM team members sleep on tatami mats in a high-mountain hiking hut, waking up hours before dawn to get back on the trail so that they can experience a stunning sunrise summit.
Everest Base Camp/Kalapathhar: March 3-14, 2018 LEARN MORE
Fourteen hikers will embark on the trek of a lifetime, hiking the Himalayan highlands to the doorstep of the world's tallest mountain, Mt. Everest. A short three-hour hike beyond Base Camp brings MM4MM team members to the summit of Kalapathhar where they will be rewarded with one of the region's most accessible views of Mt. Everest. This challenging and awe-inspiring nine-day trek (twelve days, including travel), takes even novice climbers on a strenuous but friendly journey through Nepal's magical Khumbu region, allowing for close-up views of dozens of Himalayan Giants without the dangers of a technical summit. MM4MM trekkers will sleep primarily in Nepalese teahouses, reaching an altitude of 18,519 feet above sea level.
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 funds as outlined on the application.
