Multiple Myeloma Ireland is the only charitable organisation in Ireland focused exclusively on supporting Multiple Myeloma patients, families and carers.
As a voluntary organisation we do everything we can to help patients, and their support network, to get a better understanding of their disease, and to ensure all patients get access to the best possible information, support, care, and treatment. Raising awareness about Multiple Myeloma is core to what we do, and it is a strategic imperative for our organisation.
As part of this campaign I am delighted to be able to share with you details of the Second Multiple Myeloma Ireland ‘Wild Myeloma Way Cycle‘ that will take place on September 2nd and 3rd this year.
Multiple Myeloma Ireland ‘Wild Myeloma Way Cycle‘ is again a two-day road cycling event taking riders across the stunning landscape of the Wild Atlantic Way, from Limerick to Spanish point via the fabulous Cliffs of Moher on day one and from Spanish point to Limerick via the coast on day two.
Participants will be a coming together of Health Care Professionals, Multiple Myeloma Patients and families, Pharmaceutical industry members, and the general public. It promises to be an exhilarating, but challenging event, dedicated to raising awareness about Multiple Myeloma.
he ‘Wild Myeloma Way Cycle‘ will be a professionally run event with full support crew, motorcycle outriders, mechanical backup and sports physios, cycling jersey as well as food and 2 nights’ accommodation in the Armada Hotel, Spanish Point and The Strand Hotel, Limerick.

Big Congratulations To All Who Took Part In Our 2022 Cycle
2022 Myeloma Cycle
Congratulations to all who took part in our 2022 wild myeloma way cycle. It was terrific fun and we look forward to another great event in 2023.
Some of those who took part…
Driving greater awareness of Multiple Myeloma
For many years I have worked in an organisation that is committed to researching and providing treatments for MM patients. This is a great responsibility and challenge. I’m doing this cycle to drive greater awareness of Multiple Myeloma and support the great work that MMI do to support patients, families and carers ensuring the best possible access to information, education, support, care and treatment.
Raising awareness on behalf of the Midlands Multiple Myeloma patients
Mary is Haematology ANP at Midland Regional Hospital, Tullamore. She is a founding member of MMI and is Midlands Myeloma Support Group leader. Mary is taking part again in the cycle on behalf of the Midlands patients to raise awareness and funds towards MMI activities.
In memory of mam
In 2019, we both did the cycle while our mum was very terminal with Multiple Myeloma, she died 2 months later, but was incredibly proud of the cycle. The whole event was so therapeutic for us both, and although at the time, we were both emotionally and psychologically drained, the support and camaraderie we encountered was unbelievable. Anyway, we’re doing it this year for mum, and for all those who are battling with this awful cancer.
Mum was from West Clare and we spent a lot of time in Spanish Point, so this will be extra special for us.
In support of my brother Richard
I’m doing the Wild Myeloma Way in support of my brother Richard who was diagnosed in February this year. Within 24 hours he went from a regular life to having to stop work and receive treatment. At the time of the spin, all going to plan, he will have had his stem cell transplant in Galway. Fingers crossed he will be on the mend and looking forward to a bright future. It’s great to know that he’ll be able to avail of the services and support of MMI.
I look forward to joining my ‘multiple’ friends in September for our wild adventure.
