Mike and I will be walking Sunday…every little bit helps fund research. There has been some amazing news for treating multiple myeloma including recent news on CAR-T cells as a “potentially curative therapy”. Cheer us on, donate or walk with us (or if you’d prefer, there is a category for those who would rather sleep in)! ha…I know who you are!
Benefiting: Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center
June 25, 2017
Defeat Multiple Myeloma (formerly MoveMMore Seattle) is a non-competitive 5K and one mile run/walk in support of research and awareness for multiple myeloma the second most common type of blood cancer. Held on June 25th in Magnuson Park, the course will take participants on a loop which begins and ends on the shore of beautiful Lake Washington. Defeat Multiple Myeloma is a casual, community driven event which is fun for the whole family.
An independent event, Defeat Multiple Myeloma is organized by a dedicated group of local volunteers, with support from the Multiple Myeloma Cure Seeker’s Society and benefitting multiple myeloma research at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. Our lofty goal this year is to raise $100,000. As an added benefit, every dollar raised up to our goal amount will be matched. 100% of fundraised dollars and registration fees will go to help develop a form of immunotherapy, using CAR-T cells a potentially curative therapy for multiple myeloma patients. We would like to thank our generous corporate sponsors including presenting sponsor Takeda Oncology for making this possible.
