The Multiple Myeloma March is Myeloma Canada’s flagship fundraiser. Myeloma Canada, a charitable organization, is driven to improve the lives of those impacted by myeloma and to support research toward finding a cure. The five-kilometre walk/run plays a crucial role in making this happen. The 2nd annual Oshawa Multiple Myeloma March will take place on Saturday, September 21, at 9:30 a.m., starting at Storie Park Community Centre.
Oshawa is one of a record 28 communities across Canada participating in this year’s Multiple Myeloma March. Oshawa's fundraising objective is $15,000.
Multiple myeloma, also known as myeloma, is the second most common form of blood cancer. Myeloma affects a type of immune cell called the plasma cell, found in the bone marrow. Every day, eight Canadians are diagnosed, yet in spite of its growing prevalence, the disease remains relatively unknown. While there is no cure, people with myeloma are living longer and better lives, thanks to recent breakthroughs in treatment. To find the cure, more funding and research are required.
