The Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (MMRF) held a 5K walk/run at Lake Phalen Regional Park in St. Paul Saturday, Sept. 30. The team "Richard's Racers" was made up of 23 Libbesmeier family members who participated in this fundraiser.
The MMRF holds this event annually in nine cities across the country. This family-friendly 5K walk/run raises both awareness and funds for multiple myeloma research for new-treatments, and to find a cure for this fatal disease.
Nearly 1,000 participants and supporters that took part in the
St. Paul event helped achieve nearly $175,000 for this cause. In the race, Beth Libbesmeier, Darcy Konz, and Bonnie Curtis placed with their time and received medals.
