October 2015 - On Sunday morning 52 participants of the 17th John Goldman Meeting on CML in Estoril had an early start to the day running with colleagues and friendsDSC01267 at the 5 km ‘John Goldman Fun Run’. The atmosphere was breathtaking as the sun rose along the picturesque Estoril promenade. What a start to the day!

Besides the fun and health, it was also for a good cause. A special thank you to those you donated to the iCMLf and received a John Goldman Run T-Shirt. We raised over $1,300 that will go directly to the iCMLf John Goldman Fund to improve CML treatment in the emerging regions.
