Purpose of Event
After her diagnosis with multiple myeloma, Jana Stressel and her husband Jay founded Memphis Miles for Myeloma in 2010, an annual non-profit race event benefiting the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation.
In 2014 Jana was recognized by the MMRF for her tireless work raising awareness and funds for those battling this mostly unknown blood cancer. She was awarded the MMRF’s Spirit of Hope Award for her selfless efforts and determination to help others.
Unfortunately Jana’s battle with multiple myeloma ended on Mar 17, 2016, over six years after her diagnosis. Jana defied the odds of her doctors and inspired countless people along the way. Her legacy lives on through Memphis Miles and the work she did with numerous animal rights organizations. Jana was a testament of all that is good with the human spirit, even in the face of insurmountable difficulty. She will be greatly missed by her loved ones and community.
We look forward to celebrating Jana's legacy by providing awareness and a support group for those fighting multiple myeloma today.
Once again, Grand Theft Audio has donated their time & talent to entertain us & get us in the mood to move. McAlister's Deli on Trinity Road will be back with chili & their delicious tea. Be sure to stay for the party as we will have prizes, raffles, and a photo booth after the walk and fun run!
