Support Kenny Capps as he runs 1,175 miles for Research, Continuing Health and The Throwing Bones Patient Assistance Fund
On Sunday, April 1, 2018 (with a little help from my friends) I will start running from Jockey’s Ridge State Park on the Outer Banks of North Carolina will follow the Mountain To Sea Trail for over 1,175 miles all the way to Clingman’s Dome at the western end of the state. I am calling the event “Throwing Bones” as an homage to my jam band roots, the bones that cancer has punched, and as a reminder to throw the dice and go all-in.
I have spent the last year and a half training and preparing for this trip by staying healthy, mostly listening to my doctors and killing it on the trails. I’m quickly building up a fantastic team and with their support, and yours, I am going to get there!
Throwing Bones for a Cure, Inc.’s mission is to raise funds for Multiple Myeloma Research (with those funds going to the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (MMRF)), to encourage and guide movement for Myeloma patients before and during treatment, and to establish the Throwing Bones Patient Assistance Fund to help patients and their caregivers with non-medical financial needs.
You may earmark which program to which you would like your funds to be applied.
Beginning in October 2016, I participated in a series of training runs/races as a means of preparing for the Throwing Bones Mountains to Sea Trail Run.
