Dear Friends,

Alex, and I will be participating in the TCS NYC Marathon on November 4, 2018, and Meghan and James will be running about a month earlier in the Wineglass Marathon in upstate Corning, New York on September 30, 2018. We've decided to join forces as part of the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (MMRF) Team For Cures.

The work ahead of us? Race 26.2 miles and raise as much as we can the MMRF. Training for this event is a big challenge, but nothing compared to the challenges faced by patients with multiple myeloma.

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.

In fact, thanks to the important work of the MMRF, the world's leading private funder of myeloma research, the FDA has approved TEN new treatments, including FOUR in just the past 18 months – a track record that's unparalleled in the world of oncology. These drugs have almost tripled the lifespan of myeloma patients. And now the MMRF is funding over 20 additional treatments in various stages of development, giving hope to tens of thousands of patients and their families.

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.

We are running for all those who cannot in order to benefit the MMRF in search of a cure. Please take this opportunity to give back and support this game-changing cancer organization.

Thank you,

Kelsey, Alex, Meghan & James
