this year I will again be participating in the TCS NYC Marathon as part of the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (MMRF) Team For Cures.
As many of you know Multiple myeloma is the second most common form of blood cancer. Over 30,000 people are diagnosed yearly with multiple myeloma and an estimated 12,000 are predicted to die each year from the disease. Myeloma is a cunning disease which morphs through treatment, meaning patients often need new treatment options when they relapse.
The MMRF is one of the most highly regarded cancer foundations in the world. Nearly 90% of the total MMRF budget goes directly towards research and related programming. The MMRF is in the top 1% of all charities, having earned Charity Navigator’s 4-star rating for 16 years.
Please support my participation in the TCS NYC Marathon benefiting the MMRF.
I have made a commitment to raise at least $5,000, and I need your help to get there. Please contribute whatever you can. It all adds up!
Many companies have a 'Matching gift' arrangement with the MMRF hence please utilize this opportunity for even more support (you can find a link to the programs on the website section above)
Thanks in advance,
