Dear [insert name],

Join my team in making a difference in the 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.

Sincerely,

[insert your name]

We are just (number of days left until race) days away from the MMRF Walk/Run: (Race Location) - an inspiring event that raises awareness and funds for multiple myeloma research.

I have committed to raise funds for research through my participation at this race and am $(amount left to goal) away from hitting my goal!

It’s not too late – you can still make an impact in accelerating a cure for each and every multiple myeloma patient. Show your support by joining me at the event or by making a donation on my fundraising page: (Insert Link).

Thank you in advance for your support and generosity! Every step counts and every single dollar matters!

Sincerely,
[Insert your name here]

What an amazing day it was at the MMRF Team for Cures : (Race Location) 5K Walk/Run on (Insert Day)! I felt empowered by the crowd, the speakers and the hope formed from the day. I was so inspired meeting other families and hearing about the progress being made by the foundation and its research and pharmaceutical partners. I am honored to share some of the highlights from the morning with all of you!

(Share the emotion of race day. Include some photos! If you did not take any photos, we have photos from the event on our website [24-48 hours after the race]. If you ran the race, share your race time. If you walked, share the experience you had – did you meet others? Did you learn something you didn’t know?)

As of today, with your help, I raised (Insert Fundraising Amount) for the MMRF! I thank you so much for your donation to this very personal cause of mine. I am so appreciative of your support.

The MMRF Team for Cures: 5K Walk/Run (city) is now over but the campaign continues against multiple myeloma until a cure is found. If you would still like to make a contribution to my efforts, tax-deductible donations will be accepted on my page until December 31st. Please consider making a donation to my efforts. Click on the following link to reach my fundraising page and click on DONATE: (Insert Link).

Thank you so much for your support and your kindness!

Sincerely,
