March For Myeloma
By Christine Cardillo

Blessed by a sunny day, the 1st annual March for Myeloma walk-a-thon was held at Sherwood Island State Park in Westport, CT on April 29, 2001. My sister Jennifer Hough helped organize the fundraising event which was held in honor of my husband who was recently diagnosed with myeloma. Over 200 friends, colleagues and myeloma patients were joined on the five mile walk by the Fairfield University basketball players. The walk-a-thon was followed by a successful silent auction. The event raised over $24,000 for myeloma research! Our thanks to all the participants for their overwhelming support!

Participants set off on the "Road to a Cure"
