The IMF is registered with the LaSalle Bank Chicago Distance Classic.If you live in the Chicago area, or will be in that area on August 13th, you can support the IMF by running either a half marathon or a 5K.Just click here to visit their web site to learn about the event and to register.
Then let us know that you are registered and will be running for Team IMF. We can provide you with the forms you need to do simple fundraising in your community of friends and family, and you can be assured that all the money you raise will go directly to the IMF! We hope all you runners in Chicagoland will take advantage of this great summer activity. Besides all the fun you'll have, you will be helping to raise awareness and much needed dollars for myeloma cancer research.
Please note that the first 5 runners to sign up to run for the IMF will receive a complimentary registration, so don’t delay. Also, if you use the code “Myeloma06," you’ll get $5 off of your registration.
They also need volunteers to work at the health expo on Friday and/or Saturday before the race, and/or on race day during the race. Volunteers either get a free registration to run in the race, or the race organization will make a donation to the IMF if the volunteer doesn’t run. One of our IMFers, Theresa Burkhart, who is running in the race, is organizing volunteers, so if you’re interested, you may contact her at Theresa_M_Burkhart@rush.edu or (312) 492-9538.
If you decide you will be participating in this event, please go ahead and register, and let us know by contacting Suzanne Battaglia, SBattaglia@myeloma.org, or (800) 452-CURE (2873). We will put you on the list for your TEAM IMF tee-shirt. This will be a very worthwhile day, and we hope you will join TEAM IMF!
