Philadelphia will once again be the site of a pioneering effort to raise funds for MM patients and their families. On April 25, 2009, the Philadelphia Multiple Myeloma Networking Group along with the Central Jersey and the Hackensack MM support groups will jointly sponsor a 5K walk/run. In the spirit of the "City of Brotherly Love," this regional event aims to expand the funds raised in the past and to direct all proceeds to the key MM organizations which are pivotal in providing research and support for all touched with MM.
The event will take place along the beautiful and scenic Schuylkill River overlooking Boathouse Row, The Philadelphia Museum of Art, and the city skyline.
Feedback from top teams, sponsors and key volunteers has been overwhelmingly positive so please help us by spreading the word to your friends and family. If you want to assist with the planning of the event or be added to our mailing list, please feel free to contact any of the following "Miles for Myeloma" Committee Chairpersons. As always, we need you to make it happen!
