We are delighted to host the 2nd annual Muscles for Myeloma 5K and 1 Mile Walk, Columbus, Ohio, honoring the Move MMORE Legacy. The MMORE Foundation created a well-loved event at beautiful Wolfe Park in support of multiple myeloma research. We are grateful for the opportunity to continue this race and the funding of critical myeloma research at this year’s event.
We’re building Muscles for Myeloma to help myeloma patients get moving and to help raise funds for myeloma research. 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. This year we invite patients, family, friends, and anyone that would like to participate in our Muscles for Myeloma 5K and 1M Race in Columbus on June 2. What better way to exercise than surrounded by those that support and love you?

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.
The Myeloma Crowd is a patient-driven organization, providing education and advocacy for myeloma patients. Myeloma patient Jenny Ahlstrom started the Myeloma Crowd in 2013 with the goal of filling gaps in information, tools, resources and funding. The Myeloma Crowd funds research through our Myeloma Crowd Research Initiative. Our process to identify the best research, especially for high-risk patients, led us to two important immunotherapy projects. To learn more about where the research funding goes and our process to determine which projects to fund, click here. We are 100% aligned in our goal of funding potentially curative research in myeloma.
Race proceeds will be donated to 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) for myeloma research.
