Dear [insert name],
Join my team in making a difference in tvhe lives of multiple myeloma patients and their families!
On [insert date], I will be participating in the MMRF Walk/Run: [insert event location] to raise awareness and critical funds for myeloma research as the team captain of [insert team name]. The Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (MMRF) is laser-focused on accelerating better, more precise treatments to find a cure for each and every myeloma patient, no matter their disease state. That's why our team is taking action in the fight against myeloma, the second most common blood cancer.
Here is where you can personalize your email. Why are you participating? Explain why this cause is so important to YOU. See below for an example:
As many of you know, my mother was diagnosed with multiple myeloma six years ago. As recently as 10 years ago, the life expectancy of a myeloma patient was only three years. Today, that has more than tripled, thanks to the work of the MMRF in funding collaborative research that is extending the lives of patients while they work relentlessly on a cure.
Over the past 25 years, the MMRF has raised $500+ million and directs nearly 90% of total funds to research and related programs. They have funded over 380 research grants at more than 200 centers worldwide and been recognized by Charity Navigator with a four-star Charity Rating for over 20 years. While the MMRF has made enormous progress, they still have much urgent research to do and cannot continue without your support.
I urge you to join me as a member of [insert team name] or by donating on my fundraising page: [insert link]. Thank you in advance for your support and generosity!
No one fights cancer alone. Together, we will reach the ultimate finish line: a cure.
