About the Event:
After a one-year hiatus, 2018 marks the 6th annual Eastern Iowa Miles for Myeloma Run/Walk!  This event is dedicated to raising funds for multiple myeloma research. We also seek to spread awareness of the disease and to unite people who have been touched by its affects. 
 
On Sunday, October 14, 2018, we will be running or walking a 2- or 4-mile loop (one lap is 2 miles) around the lake at Terry Trueblood Recreation Area.  Pre-registration is strongly encouraged.  If you need to register the day of the event, we advise that you arrive at 10 AM to do so.  Race start time is 11 AM.
 
All funds benefit the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (MMRF), which strives to accelerate the cure for this blood plasma cancer. 
 
We invite all people of all ages and abilities to join us.  
Music, children’s activities, snacks and a silent auction will be provided at the starting line of the race. The event will be held rain or shine. 
 

Event History:
The first ever Eastern Iowa Miles for Myeloma took place in 2012 at Terry Trueblood Recreation Area in Iowa City, Iowa. 
 
Dan and Laurie Cummins, a special couple local to Iowa City, created the EIMM event with the help of their two children, Jim and Katie.  The family wished to remember Dan’s brother, Doug, who passed away at age 50 from Multiple Myeloma, as well as a friend, Dan Dwyer, who passed away the following year at age 51.  
This year, Annie Blaser of North Liberty, Iowa will be Chairing the event in honor of her mother, Mary, who was diagnosed with multiple myeloma in 2012. 
 
At the first annual EIMM, 12 people gathered together to rally for a cure.  In its most recent year, nearly 600 people joined together to raise awareness and funds for the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation!  Without a doubt, the EIMM event has grown exponentially since its inception.  Thank you to our dedicated volunteers, participants, and sponsors for making this possible!
