FUNdraising Events


Ongoing Fundraising Activities

You know you want to do something in your community to raise funds and public awareness about myeloma, but deciding on what to do can be confusing. The IMF's FUNdraising program can help you. We have over 12 years of experience helping members around the world raise money for research and educational programs.

We can give your event or campaign its own web page, allowing your friends and family to donate online. Below you will find a listing of events we have going on throughout the year, and we would be happy to add yours as well. In addition, this year we’re debuting a new magazine called "Making Miracles," in which we highlight IMFers who are proactive in our mutual goals: helping to find a cure for myeloma and at the same time, spreading awareness in their local communities.

FUNdraising is fun (get it?) and easy to do, and you'll have the satisfaction of knowing that you made a difference. No idea is too large or too small. Everyone knows someone who has been touched by cancer—people will want to help! We are here to provide you with the tools, assistance and expertise you'll need to make your FUNdraiser a success. Get started today, by contacting our dedicated staff person, Suzanne Battaglia, SBattaglia@myeloma.org or (800) 452-2873. She is here to chat with you about any ideas you might have. Be part of the progress of making miracles happen!
VETERANS AGAINST MYELOMA (VAM)
Our combined efforts to continue our service through the Veterans Against Myeloma cause can help research and help us win the battle by finding a cure.
Bicycle Mojave...and Beyond!!!
Andy Sninsky is now a 6+ year survivor of Stage III Multiple Myeloma. I have bicycled every March raising awareness of the disease. This year I am riding 1000 miles of California bringing tidings of good cheer to many support groups along my route. You can follow me and donate to research.
Cancer Awareness Bracelets
We are Beading for the Cure! All of our Cancer Awareness bracelets are handcrafted with the HOPE that soon, this disease will have successful, long term treatment leading to a Complete Remission (CR) for EVERY patient with multiple myeloma. Each bracelet and those who wear them are touched by our thoughts and prayers. We are 100% volunteer, every bead, every charm, every minute spent is donated to the IMF. We are committed to reaching the goal of discovering the CURE!
