Join us on May 21, 2016, at 10:00 AM for the second annual HikeMF!
The 2 mile scenic hike will take place at Moose HIll Wildlife Sanctuary in Sharon, MA. The trail is good for all ages, so lace up your boots, bring your friends and family and join the fun for a great cause! We will have refreshments, raffle items and a silent auction after the hike. Register today...space is limited!
HikeMF is an annual fundraiser for Myelofibrosis, a rare blood cancer with no cure.
In August 2014, my sister, Julie Rittenburg Libon, was diagnosed with Myelofibrosis. She and my other sister Lori immediately felt an urgency to become proactive to find a cure for this disease that affects 16,000-18,000 people.
Hence, HikeMF was born.
Together with our families, we annually organize HikeMF, a hike through beautiful Moose Hill Wildlife Sanctuary in our hometown of Sharon, MA, to bring awareness to Myelofibrosis and raise money for research and ultimately a cure.
We are again proud to have all donations go to the MPN Research Foundation, who this year will earmark them specifically to Dr. George M. Church, PhD, Harvard Medical School. (Http://www.mpnresearchfoundation.org/2015-George-Church)
Thank you so much for supporting me to help support my sister in this fight against Myelofibrosis!
