About Muscles for Myeloma

We’re building Muscles for Myeloma to help myeloma patients get moving and to help raise funds for myeloma research. Fitness matters to everyone, but it is especially important for myeloma patients. The more fit patients are, the more they are able to tolerate therapies which leads to better, longer lasting outcomes. This year we invite patients, family, friends, and anyone that would like to participate in our Muscles for Myeloma 5K and 1M Race in Columbus on June 1. What better way to exercise than surrounded by those that support and love you?

Where: Wolfe Park, 105 Park Dr. Columbus, OH

When: Saturday, June 1, 2019

Time: 5 K Race – 7:30 a.m. registration, 8:30 start time |  1 Mile Walk – 9:00 a.m. start time

Parking: Parking is available at Wolfe Park and the St. Charles school (next to Wolfe Park).

Shirts: Shirts are guaranteed for registrations made before May 6, 2019. After this date, we will have some extra shirts available, but cannot guarantee correct sizes or quantities.

Packet Pickup: Race packets can be picked up at Graeter’s Ice Cream parlor, 1534 West Lane Ave, Columbus, OH 43221 on Thursday, May 30, and Friday, May 31, from 11:30 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. each day.

Pets: We love dogs, but in the interest of safety for all, we request that you leave your pooch at home. It is a danger for myeloma patients who can easily trip and fall with grave consequences. Thank you for understanding.

About the Myeloma Crowd

The Myeloma Crowd is a patient-driven organization, providing education and advocacy for myeloma patients. Myeloma patient Jenny Ahlstrom started the Myeloma Crowd in 2013 with the goal of filling gaps in information, tools, resources and funding. The Myeloma Crowd funds research through our Myeloma Crowd Research Initiative. Our process to identify the best research, especially for high-risk patients, led us to two important immunotherapy projects. To learn more about where the research funding goes and our process to determine which projects to fund, click here. We are 100% aligned in our goal of funding potentially curative research in myeloma.

Race proceeds will be donated to the Myeloma Crowd Research Initiative and The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center – Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute (OSUCCC – James) for myeloma research.
