MMRF PowerTeam: Run/Bike/Tri Your Own Race

MMRF POWERTEAM – Run/Bike/Tri Your Own Race

Participating in an athletic event or other physical challenge is a wonderful opportunity to honor friends and loved ones with multiple myeloma while raising funds to support the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (MMRF) in its mission to bring patients new treatments and find a cure for multiple myeloma. The MMRF is able to provide training and fundraising support at events of your choice!

The MMRF invites you to help us raise awareness and funds for multiple myeloma research by joining our MMRF PowerTeam. We have made it easy to support the MMRF while participating in an event of your choice. We will be with you every step of the way, from the moment you sign up to the incredible moment that you cross the finish line at your selected event. Being a part of our team promises to be one of the most empowering and inspiring experiences of your life.

MMRF athletes receive free virtual training and other training support to get you ready for race day. Free fundraising tools, including a personalized online fundraising page, downloadable marketing materials, and full time fundraising support are provided to help you reach your fundraising goals. Team members also receive race day team jerseys and assistance in securing an event entry if needed.

We ask that each MMRF PowerTeam member set a goal of $1500 for their event. If you follow our plan and take our suggestions, you will get there! We will be in touch with assistance and help you get to your fundraising goal so that you can help fund reserch that is extending the lives of patients and getting us closer to the cure.

In order to ensure that 90% of all funds raised go back to fund myeloma research, each MMRF athlete will be responsible for costs such as marathon registration, transportation and hotel accommodations.

WhyJoin for our Team?
Our teams raise money and awareness for cancer research. Many members of our teams have a direct connection to multiple myeloma. Others join us to support a great organization that is transforming the way that medical research and drug development are being conducted. All team members are proud to support an organization that is using their money responsibly and is one of the nations' highest rated charities by 'watch dogs' like Charity Navigator, which rates the MMRF in the top 1% of all charities it monitors.
