Katelyn & Sean Kilpatrick
The Kilpatrick family is at it again! We will be participating in IRONMAN Lake Placid on July 28nd, 2018 as part of the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (MMRF) Team For Cures for the THIRD year in a row!
The work ahead of us? Race 140.6 miles (2.4 mile swim / 112 mile bike / 26.2 mile run) on one of the toughest/hilliest Ironman courses in the world, and more importantly, raise at least $10,000 for the MMRF. Training for this event for the second year in a row is a big challenge, but nothing compared to the challenges faced by patients with multiple myeloma.
Katie's mom is a survivor currently battling multiple myeloma, the second most common form of blood cancer with one of the lowest five-year relative survival rates of all cancers. But while there is no cure, great progress is being made due to the work of 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. This has led to TEN new treatments that are helping Katie's mom each day!
We were so thankful for everyone's support the past 2 years, but the work is never over for those battling multiple myeloma. We would be so honored if you would support us again this year on our family's journey!
We love you all!
Katie & Sean
