MM4MM: Mount Kilimanjaro Trek

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

On September 11 - 22, 2020, this team of MMRF hikers who have been specially selected to form the Moving Mountains for Multiple Myeloma Kilimanjaro team will embark on the trip of a lifetime. This team will ascend the Lemosho route through the various ecosystems of this 19,341-foot tall mountain. 

This challenging and awe-inspiring eight-day trek (twelve days including travel) takes hikers on a climb through the diverse and challenging environments of Kilimanjaro. The Lemosho route takes hikers through five ecosystems, from dense forest and heather up through alpine desert to the glorious summit. 

We are proud to partner with the experts at Embark Exploration Co, a US-based company and leader in world travel who will guide us on this expedition as they have done for our previous Mount Kilimanjaro and Everest Base Camp 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 $10,000 per person. Please see "Event Info" page to find out more about what is included.


Prospective team members for the Mount Kilimanjaro 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.
