About This Activity

Join us on Saturday, March 26, 2016 for our inaugural Brandon M. Sizemore Memorial 5K Walk/Run for Multiple Myeloma.

Brandon, at age 28, was diagnosed with multiple myeloma, a rare blood cancer affecting the plasma cells of the bone marrow. Currently, as with many cancers, myeloma has no cure. Brandon, in the course of his battle with cancer received all conventional treatment options, including different chemotherapy regimens, radiation therapy, and two stem-cell transplants. Ultimately, Brandon relied on a clinical trial for continued treatment. On January 22, 2016, Brandon, at the age of 33, sadly passed away due to complications of his cancer.

It is the goal of the Brandon M. Sizemore Memorial 5K to 1) honor and remember the courageous life of Brandon, 2) raise awareness of this rare cancer, and 3) generate funds to donate to research to find a cure for multiple myeloma.

Those who would like to donate, but are unable to physically be present, may choose the virtual race and can complete their own 5K in spirit to honor Brandon or other multiple myeloma patients. Just write on the form "virtual participant" to notate you will not be walking or running.
