On March 14th through April 1st, 2018, 10 Moving Mountains for Multiple Myeloma Program Alumni hikers will embark on another grand adventure in a new corner of the world. This special team will trek the Himalayan highlands to the doorstep of the world's tallest mountain, Mt. Everest. Taking the "route less traveled," this team will also experience hiking to the pristine, sacred, and impossibly blue Gokyo Lakes.

This challenging and awe-inspiring 14-day trek (18 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. Hikers will sleep primarily in Nepalese teahouses, easing into the Sherpa culture, assisted by friendly herds of yaks that carry much of the team's gear. The summit of Kalapathhar, the highest point on the climb, reaches an altitude of 18,192 feet above sea level. 

We are proud to partner with the experts at Embark Adventures, a US-based company and leader in world travel who will guide us on this expedition as they have done for our two Mt. Kilimanjaro treks. Note that no special equipment, special training, or any technical climbing is required. 

This team will be made up of multiple myeloma patients, caregivers, and doctors. 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 MM4MM 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. 

 
Goal: $50,000
