The Walk will take place at the 2019 IWMF Educational Forum in Philadelphia, PA. As in prior years, besides getting fresh air, healthy exercise, and sharing good company, walkers will have the option to help others on their journey with WM by raising money to support the vision of the IWMF: “Support everyone affected by Waldenstrom’s macroglobulinemia while advancing the search for a cure!” This year, we will be starting at 6:30 am (Eastern US Time) and walking in downtown Philadelphia near the hotel and past various sites of historic and artistic significance.
