Make Bond Run Up A Lot of Steps. All in the Name of Cancer Research.
2013 ESBRU Burst Wave
I am participating in the Empire State Building Run-Up in February 2014 as part of the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (MMRF) PowerTeam (title sponsor) for the second straight year. This race turned out to be one of the most personally rewarding experiences to date.
The work ahead of me?
Run up 1,576 steps to the top of the Empire State Building and raise at least $2,500 for the MMRF. Training for this event is a challenge, but nothing compared to the challenges faced by patients with multiple myeloma.
The Purpose: Help fund research that is extending the lives of patients and getting us closer to a cure!
Multiple myeloma is, at this time, an incurable blood cancer. Although progress has been made in treating multiple myeloma, the five-year relative survival rate remains one of the lowest of all cancers.
The mission of the MMRF is to relentlessly pursue innovative research that accelerates the development of next generation treatments to extend the lives of patients and lead to a cure.
The MMRF is the world's leading private funder of myeloma research. Their work has contributed to FDA approval of six new cancer drugs in less than a decade – a track record that's unparalleled in the world of oncology.
The MMRF is one of the most highly regarded cancer foundations in the world. An outstanding 90% of the total MMRF budget goes directly towards research and related programming. The MMRF is consistently recognized in the top 1% of all charities reviewed by evaluators like Charity Navigator.
The Goal: Raise $ for the MMRF!
