Moving Mountains for Multiple Myeloma
MM4MM: Mount Washington
Raising money for Multiple Myeloma, the MM4MM team took on a challenging two-day hike up Mount Washington. Mt. Washington is the highest peak in the northeastern United States and the most prominent peak east of the Mississippi at 6,288 feet above sea level, and is known for its extreme weather and popularity in the hiking world.
MM4MM: Fire + Ice Iceland
In August of 2019 , the twelfth MM4MM team ventured to take on Iceland's otherworldly, challenging landscape. Two-and-a-half days of challenging and spectacular hiking included an assortment of geological marvels, including volcanoes, glaciers, geysers, hot springs, gorges, lava beds, waterfalls and mountains. This hike is sometimes called "Fire and Ice" because on any given day you hike up lava fields and volcanoes, and then alongside stunning glaciers.
A 15-person team of multiple myeloma patients, doctors, family members, and supporters climbed the renowned 19,341-foot Uhuru Peak on Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, Africa in 2016 to raise awareness and funds for critical multiple myeloma research. The inaugural event of Moving Mountains for Multiple Myeloma, a collaboration between CURE Media Group, Takeda and the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (MMRF), raised approximately $250,000, with all proceeds going to the MMRF to accelerate research for next generation treatments.
