Dear Friends and Family,
We are so proud to announce we will be participating in the Moving Mountains for Multiple Myeloma program in March 2018 by climbing to Everest Base Camp & Kalapathhar to raise funds and awareness for the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (MMRF) Team For Cures.
Last year, when we were part of an MM4MM team that hiked the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu in Peru (~8,000 feet above sea level), you helped us raise over $15,000 for the MMRF. This year, we are aiming higher - literally and figuratively. The goal this time around: hike to the "front door of Everest" (18,519 feet above sea level) and raise at least $20,000 for the MMRF's life-extending cancer research!
The MMRF is one of the most highly regarded cancer foundations in the world. An outstanding 90% of the total MMRF budget goes directly towards research and related programming. And the MMRF is in the top 1% of all charities, having earned Charity Navigator’s 4-star rating for the past eleven years in a row. The Karmanos Cancer Institute is a proud member institution of the MMRF's unrivaled Multiple Myeloma Research Consortium.
Please take this opportunity to give back and support this game-changing cancer organization. If you want to double your impact, inquire if your company matches your charitable donations and submit your donation information through your company's portal or HR to receive a match! Forward us your confirmation email and we can get your match added to our fundraising total!

....oh, and did we mention we're not doing this hike alone? One of our patients is going with us!
