We are delighted to host the 5th Annual Muscles for Myeloma 5K and 1 Mile Walk in Columbus, Ohio on June 5, 2021. The 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.
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?
Half of the race proceeds are donated to support myeloma research at the Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center – Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute (OSUCCC – James) and the other half of race proceeds are donated to the Myeloma Crowd Research Initiative.
