With this we've been fortunate to raise funds along the way through our events in which we will distribute to various channels that we're confident are an extension to exactly what the Chip Miller Amyloidosis Foundation is all about, continued Miller. "We're honored to know we're making a positive impact and we're certain my father, Chip Miller, is smiling down knowing full well he's still making a positive footprint just as he did when he was still alive."  Lance Miller concluded by noting "to the many supporters, thank you for the bottom of our hearts without you we couldn't be where we are today in helping so many afflicted with this terrible disease."

As 2018 concludes, the CMAF will be looking to utilize additional aspects of their income to benefit the foundation as well.  These plans include an overhaul of the www.ChipMiller.org web page as well as marketing and promotional materials for 2019 and beyond.  Speaking of 2019, the events schedule is being planned, with some tweaks being looked at, plus the addition of at least one new event in Carlisle, Pennsylvania.  The 2019 schedule will be announced during the early parts of the new year and will be made available online via the aforementioned web page.
