ABOUT MIRACLES FOR MYELOMA 5K HYBRID RUN/WALK
The Miracles for Myeloma 5K Hybrid Run/Walk was started in 2012 by Sheree Pask (who was diagnosed with multiple myeloma in 2007) along with her husband Ron, and friend Gina Klemm. Gina’s brother, avid runner Frank Guarino, was diagnosed with myeloma and passed away in December 2012. The Pasks and Gina decided to start a fundraiser 5K race. Their collective aim was to help raise awareness of the disease and to fundraise for myeloma research. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 5K Run/Walk has since evolved into a hybrid race to encourage virtual participation from those who cannot make it to the in-person race.
