We all have that one defining moment when we know that we want to make a difference and can’t just sit in silence any longer. Team CMMD was formed January 1, 2013 by Christine Meyer, MD, a local physician. On the first day of the year, Christine was in an emotional downward spiral after the holidays. The gifts had been unwrapped, the decor was sagging, and her spirits were hitting an all-time low. Three of her dearest patients were battling for their lives after each receiving a devastating cancer diagnosis. Christine was questioning everything, including her worth as a doctor, unable to help her patients. She woke up feeling fat, old, and tired. Weighing most heavily on her mind was her aunt and medical mentor, who herself was nearing the end of a grueling chemo treatment plan for stage III B colon cancer.

 

She needed a goal — something to work toward and look forward to. So Christine decided to train for and run Philadelphia’s famous Blue Cross Broad Street Run. The last thing she wanted to do was get on that treadmill, or worse, brave the frigid temperatures to run outside. But in past years, getting ready for this 10-miler had gotten her through the dreary winter months and kept her exercising. She knew that a sure way to guarantee a spot to run Broad Street was to form a charity team. The rest is history. Within hours Team CMMD was born. Within days, our team had grown to 46 members. Within weeks, we had exceeded our original goal of $2,000. And after four months of training and fundraising through the American Cancer Society’s DetermiNation® program, Team CMMD had raised over $65,000. And we’ve never looked back!

We have raised over $1,000,000 for the ACS since Team CMMD started in 2013 and we will look to add to that staggering total again this year!
