Through Throwing Bones, we hope to encourage and inspire, and to educate and enable blood cancer patients everywhere to find their best quality of life through healthy and active lifestyles.

All proceeds from the Throwing Bones Trail Race will go towards helping patients assess their physical abilities, allowing caregivers and healthcare providers to succeed. Current projects include a patient self-assessment series, healthcare, and connecting patients with patient-focused fitness coaches.
