MMRF Training Run

This morning approximately 25 running fundraisers (including my good friend Gary) participated in a group training run in Central Park for the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation. They were joined by Jane Hoffmann (MMRF Marathon Program), Tom Holland and Susan Riskin for one trip around the park, just over 6 miles. I have not met Tom or Susan yet but have heard their selfless efforts working with the Marathon Program are extraordinary. Jane and her colleague Alicia who run the program at MMRF are incredible. They have gone above and beyond to make my fundraising experiences more than I could have expected.

The group is in the home stretch of their training for the upcoming NYC Half Marathon on March 21st. I wish I could have attended this event but I was thinking of them and I hear it was a blast. Good luck to all of you on the 21st. You are all amazing for working so hard for such a great cause. You are ready for the big day.

By the way if anyone is interested in running in this SOLD OUT event, there are still spots available for entry through MMRF (click program link for more details).

As many of you know MMRF is my charity of choice. It is a pleasure to run for MMRF, the world's number-one funder of multiple myeloma research. I am thankful for all the support I have received over the years helping the MMRF in its relentless pursuit of innovative means that accelerate the development of next generation treatments to extend the lives of patients and lead to a cure.
