Defeat Multiple Myeloma 5K
CELEBRATE SURVIVORS & LOVED ONES LOST
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 24th 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.
Registration includes a gender specific tech running shirt, a fully supported course, and a finish line party with music and food. Registration is free for multiple myeloma patients and survivors and only $10 for children. Day of registration is also available.
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.
Defeat Myeloma 5K is produced with the help of Multiple Myeloma Cure Seekers Society, which was was founded in hopes of raising understanding and funding for research to find a cure for Multiple Myeloma.
