Avalanche Walks for MMRF

MMRF Walk

Avalanche Mortgage team members get ready to walk for MMRF.

Avalanche Mortgage team members laced up our walking shoes and braved December’s chill to raise $5,000 for the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (MMRF). Team members brought in $2,500, and Avalanche Mortgage matched the amount.

The Avalanche team walked in support of Loan Officer Steve Freeman. One of Steve’s family members was diagnosed with multiple myeloma, an incurable blood cancer, earlier this year. Twenty of our staff and family members set aside a Saturday morning to help fund research for the disease.

“No matter the situation, the Avalanche Mortgage team is one to have on your side,” says Steve. “I am both honored and humbled by their commitment to finding a cure.”

MMRF is the leading research foundation for multiple myeloma. With its partners, MMRF has contributed to the development of six new treatments in just the last decade. For more information on MMRF or to make a donation, please visit http://www.themmrf.org/.
