The Boston Marathon is the world's oldest and most prestigious marathon, and will take place on Monday, April 17th, 2023. For many runners it is the "one" they absolutely must run in their lifetime. Boston is the only marathon (besides the US Olympic Trials) for which runners have to qualify by running a marathon in or under a certain time. The only other way to get in is through a participating charity. The Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation is an official charity partner of the Boston Marathon and has a small number of bibs available to qualified and non-qualified runners alike. We are looking for a close connection to multiple myeloma and commitment to fundraise above and beyond to join the team.
Your participation truly makes a difference to multiple myeloma patients. Your support has enabled the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation to:
- Raise over $500M for research
- Bring 15+ FDA-approved drugs to market
- Triple patient survival
When you join us at the Boston Marathon, you'll do so with full support. Enjoy the camaraderie of a team experience, a team reception the day before the marathon, a Cheer Zone with MMRF supporters, a custom training plan and more!
