7th Annual Miracles for Myeloma 5K Race/Walk
September 21, 2019
Oak Ridge Park, Clark NJ
Our Seventh Annual Miracles for Myeloma 5K run/walk will take place on Saturday, September 21, 2019! Our sixth run/walk last year became an unbelievable event for all, and we raised over $80,000 in pursuit of the cure for multiple myeloma. As a matter of fact, a Senior Brian D. Novis Research Grant was awarded to the entire Miracles for Myeloma event, and was presented to a researcher helping to find that cure at the American Society of Hematologist conference in December! It is once again our goal to raise awareness and money in our ongoing fight against this deadly disease.

My brother, Frank Guarino, was diagnosed with multiple myeloma in June of 2011. He passed away just 18 months later, on December 31, 2012, at the age of 51. When he was diagnosed, we had never heard of this disease but that changed after countless trips to Hackensack University Medical Center, two stem cell transplants and several chemotherapy treatments. Frank was an avid runner since high school and he had discussed wanting to raise money for multiple myeloma research by hosting a 5K race.
