Join Myeloma Australia’s first ever national fundraising and awareness walk

Sunday 27th February 2022

Introducing 3.8 with a mate

3.8 with a mate (3.8) is a way of further supporting the 38mates who are diagnosed with myeloma
each week in Australia.


The 3.8 is a COMMUNITY EVENT designed to raise funds and awareness for Myeloma Australia. It can be a 3.8km walk – or a variation of this – it is a simple, achievable and community building event. We understand and appreciate that NOT everyone wants to, or is able to, run a 10km or half marathon – we are keen for the 3.8 to be as inclusive as possible.

Myeloma Australia is committed to community. We are looking for individuals and families – those affected by myeloma and their networks – to come together for a 3.8 event and to walk together in solidarity; to raise both awareness about myeloma and vital funds for Myeloma Australia.

The 3.8 is the next chapter of the 38mate story. The 3.8 continues the theme of raising awareness about myeloma and introduces the broader public to the important work of Myeloma Australia within the community. Alongside awareness raising The 3.8 is designed to be a fundraising campaign.

The concept of The 3.8 is for Myeloma Australia to facilitate multiple 3.8 events across Australia on Sunday 27th February 2022. The 3.8 is simple! It can be anywhere in Australia, in any city, town or region.
