Our first fundraiser for myeloma!
Posted May 15, 2014

We held our first fundraiser to raise money for multiple myeloma patient education and support at the Thanksgiving Point (Lehi, Utah) Tulip Festival half marathon, 5k and kids run. We reached our goal of $10,000 thanks to your amazing support! It was pouring rain on this spring day – a great day for growing friends and flowers. We got drenched but so what? When it comes to raising funds and awareness for a great cause, a little rain can't dampen our spirits or resolve. Our deepest appreciation for those who supported us and made it a successful run. We hope that this is the first of many more to come. It’s not too late to Donate Here for this very first campaign to support multiple myeloma patients!
