Running to Save Lives

(76 miles so far)

Welcome to my Team In Training home page.

I'm training to participate in the Nike Women's Marathon and 1/2 Marathon in San Francisco as a member of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's (LLS) Team In Training. All of us on Team In Training are raising funds to help stop leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin lymphoma and myeloma from taking more lives. I am completing this event in honor of all individuals who are battling blood cancers. These people are the real heroes on our team, and we need your support to cross the ultimate finish line - a cure!

As an added challenge, if I meet my fundraising goals by August 15th I will run the Marathon rather than the 1/2 Marathon. Yes. You can make me work harder. You can make me run an additional 13.1 miles in the hills (did you get that?!?!? I said HILLS!!) of San Francisco. This is how serious I am about raising money for this cause! Please make a donation to support my participation in Team In Training and help advance LLS's mission.

I am also running in Honor of: Barbara Kearns, June Givens, Flora Powell, Janie Sims, Alice Oakes and Mike Kantmann.

If you are making a donation in honor of someone be sure and tell me. I will carry a list of everyone that I am running (maybe crawling) for.

I hope you will visit my web site often. Be sure to check back frequently to see my progress. Thanks for your support!

    "Let�s help scientists find a cure for this terrible disease which affects so many people's lives.� Keep in mind, nobody is immune from cancer.�It can happen to you or your loved one anytime.� Just in last several months I found out that 6 people I know were diagnosed with some type of cancer.� One of them is a child who has Leukemia and she is only 9 years old.� One of them is a really close dear friend to me and she has a lung cancer.� We need your help so the research studies to find a cure for cancer continues in full speed.� Please make a donation for this organization or another one of your chose in any amount you can.� No donation is too small.� Thank you so much!"
