We are extremely excited to announce that we will be hosting the 6th Annual HealthTree Moves/Muscles for Myeloma 5K and 1 Mile Walk in Columbus, Ohio on June 4, 2022. We will have options for both Virtual and in person.
This race was established by the Move MMORE Legacy over 10 years ago and was turned over to the Myeloma Crowd in 2017. We are grateful for the opportunity to continue a race and tradition that has greatly impacted the myeloma community in Columbus. The past two years we have felt the support and love of many as we held a virtual event, but we are thrilled to be in person this year.
Fitness matters to everyone, but it is especially important for myeloma patients. The more fit patients are, the more they are able to tolerate therapies which leads to better, longer lasting outcomes. Every year we invite patients, family, friends, and anyone that would like to participate in the race. What better way to exercise than surrounded by those that support and love you?
All race proceeds are donated to support myeloma research at both the Myeloma Crowd Research Initiative and the Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center – Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute (OSUCCC – James).

Pets: We love dogs, but in the interest of safety for all, we request that you leave your pooch at home. It is a danger for myeloma patients who can easily trip and fall with grave consequences. Thank you for understanding.
