The 3rd Annual Miracles for Myeloma Race Is Just Around the Corner



The 3rd Annual Miracles For Myeloma 5K run/walk is happening on Saturday, September 26, 2015 at Oak Ridge Park in Clark, NJ. Last year’s 2nd annual event was a big success, with more than $125,000 raised to support the IMF’s research to cure multiple myeloma. The event will also feature “A Remembrance Path,” where participants and spectators can walk a pathway marked by maroon and white balloons tied to placards, each honoring a loved one who has been diagnosed and is living with myeloma or in special remembrance of those who have died. To donate, create a balloon and placard for the remembrance walk or to sign up for the race, please visit the Miracles for Myeloma event page, HERE
