Memphis Miles was created 3 years ago by Jay & Jana Stressel. Jana was walking 5 miles a day at Shelby Farms when in September, 2009, she became ill with what she thought was a 24 hour virus. At the emergency room, she learned she was in renal failure, which led to her diagnosis of Stage 3 Multiple Myeloma. After 3 stem cell transplants, Jana continues to fight this incurable cancer.

When Jana and Jay created MMM, they wanted to raise lots of money for MMRF, and still do, but they learned the first year that the event was much more than that. Patients came together with friends and loved ones, and there were those who came in memory of a loved one who had lost their battle to MM. The event has turned into something very special.

Of course, raising money is an important goal. MMRF research dollars have made a difference in the lives of many MM patients, including Jana. She's currently being treated with Krypolis, a chemo approved by the FDA last June and the research funded by MMRF. MMRF is in the top 1% of charities in the country. All the money raised through this Walk/Run goes directly to MMRF. Sponsor dollars pay expenses.

    It's almost time excited to partner with Start 2 Finish and the MMRF again. Now it's time to raise some awareness (and research money!).
