The health and well-being of our patients is our top priority. We want to let you know that we have been monitoring the Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation closely and will provide any updates to you as soon as possible. We advise that everyone must make their own decisions with regard to managing their risk of exposure. We encourage anyone exhibiting symptoms to please consult your physician. If you have any additional questions about COVID-19, you may contact the MMRF Patient Navigation Center (PNC) at 888-841-6673.

Join the MMRF as we continue to expand our program to new heights with
the Moving Mountains for Multiple Myeloma (MM4MM) Program!

In August 2020, this team of MMRF hikers who have been specially selected to form the Moving Mountains for Multiple Myeloma Greenland team will embark on the trip of a lifetime. This team will trek across the challenging landscape of Greenland, over glaciers, across fjords, and ascending beautiful peaks. 

This challenging and awe-inspiring four-day trek (seven days including travel) takes even novice climbers on a journey through the incredible landscape of Greenland.
We arrive at Nasarsuaq, the Gateway to Southern Greenland, just 4 miles from the Greenland Ice Sheet. Our arctic adventure will take us through majestic, remote countryside where we will see blue-tinged icebergs, glaciers and the fjords. We will trek along ancient sheep trails through tundra and glacier valleys to a world that maintains the feel of the arctic pioneers, staying in accommodations that range from hotels to hostels to farm stays.

We are proud to partner with the experts at Adventure Fundraising, a US-based company who will guide us on this expedition as they have done for our past Iceland and Grand Canyon: Havasu Falls treks. Note that no special equipment, special training, or any technical climbing is required. 

This team will be made up of multiple myeloma patients, caregivers, doctors, clinicians, nurses, and others connected to multiple myeloma. This is a powerful and life-changing experience as the team overcomes challenges, pushes beyond perceived limits, and honors loved ones and friends living with multiple myeloma. This MM4MM team is LIVING PROOF that the work being done by the MMRF and our research partners is helping myeloma patients live longer and more active lives. 

Thanks to the generous support of our sponsors, the MMRF is able to underwrite most of the trekking costs of the trip. Team members agree to raise a minimum of $7,500 per person. Please see "Event Info" page to find out more about what is included.


Prospective team members for the Greenland team must apply for and be selected to join the team. Teams are made up of individuals who have a direct connection to multiple myeloma: Patients, caregivers, family members of patients, and those who work directly with myeloma patients. Team members are encouraged to maximize fundraising efforts. Applications will be selected on a rolling basis until teams reach capacity.
