Dear Friends, family, colleagues and supporters,

I am so very proud to be back and racing another season for the amazing Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (MMRF) Team for Cures. I will be participating in IRONMAN 70.3 Connecticut on June 2, 2019 and the NYC Marathon on November 3, 2019. These amazing organization holds a special place in my heart and I am so proud to race again in 2019 on the Team for Cures.

The work ahead of me? At Ironman CT, race 70.3 miles and at the NYC Marathon, run a beautiful 26.2miles through the greatest city in the world. And while I'm at it, raise at least $6,500 for the MMRF. Training for these events 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 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 Goal: Raise $6,500 for the MMRF!

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 highest rating possible).

Please support my participation in IRONMAN 70.3 Connecticut and the NYC Marathon benefiting the MMRF. I have made a commitment to raise at least $6,500, and I need your help to get there. I know that this goal can be blown out of the water. In the 2 seasons I have raced with the MMRF, I have raised over $17,000 for this amazing game changing cancer research organization. Please contribute whatever you can. It all adds up!

Please take this opportunity to give back and support this game-changing cancer organization.

Thank you, from the bottom of my heart.
Amy
