The 2017 Multiple Miles for Myeloma Walk/Run was a tremendous success, raising over $80,000 in donations. Thanks so much to all our sponsors, participants, volunteers and donors, who all played a crucial part in bringing about that success. Once again we had a beautiful sunny day, great food and drink, and terrific company and fellowship. For more information about the event and lots of great photos click here
