Carolyne Hynes: Running for a Good Cause
Power To Make The Difference
On April 21, 2013, I will be participating in the London Marathon as part of the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (MMRF) Power Team.

Multiple myeloma is an incurable blood cancer. Although progress has been made in treating multiple myeloma, the five-year relative survival rate remains one of the lowest of all cancers.

The MMRF is a leading cancer research foundation that has helped to double survival for multiple myeloma patients since its inception. Together with its partners in the pharmaceutical industry and at academic centers, the MMRF has contributed to the development of five new treatments in the last decade, several of which may be effective in treating other cancers. The MMRF continues to build innovative collaborative models that will accelerate the development of new and better treatments for multiple myeloma and all cancer patients, and lead to cures.

With an outstanding 90% of the MMRF total budget directed to research and related programming, funds that will be raised at the London Marathon and other events will make a meaningful difference in accelerating the process to lead to a cure.

In 2011, I had the privilege of participating in the NYC Marathon as part of the MMRF Power Team. As a team member, I was committed to raising money for the MMRF to fund the research to lead to more treatment advances for multiple myeloma, eventually leading to a cure. Since then, I've remained committed to training and participated in many more races including several half marathons, the Marine Corps Marathon and a Run Up all 1,576 steps (86 floors) of the Empire State Building. All my training is enabling me to stay committed to the MMRF and help bring them one step closer to finding a cure for multiple myeloma.

Please support my participation in the London Marathon benefitting the MMRF! I have pledged to raise at least $4,000. I need your help to get there. Please help as much as you can. It all adds up. Together, we can make a difference!

Thank you, Carolyne Yacoub Hynes
