Power To Make The Difference: Taking on The NYC Triathlon and Fighting Myeloma!
Shelton Hollers's Fundraising Page
I am participating in the 2014 New York City Triathlon on August 3rd as part of the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (MMRF) PowerTeam. This charity contributes 90% of it's funds directly to cancer research.

The work ahead of me? Race 32 total miles (1500 meter swim, 40k bike ride, 10k run) and raise at least $1,500 for the MMRF. Training for an event like this is always a serious 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 $1,500 for the MMRF!

Please support my participation in the New York City Triathlon benefiting the MMRF! I have made a commitment to raise at least $1,500, and I need your help to get there. Please contribute whatever you can. It all adds up!

Please take this opportunity to give back and support this game-changing cancer organization.
