In Honor of my Father!
Apr 08, 2013 by Kurt Weatherford

Dearest Family and Friends,

Well I have decided to do a half Marathon with Team in Training. I will be competing in the Disneyland, Half Marathon on September 1, 2013. I will be completing 13.1 miles for this worthy cause. Cancer has touched us all in one way or another. In January 2006 I lost my Dad, Don Wilson to a very rare form of blood Cancer. He was my parent, my friend, my teacher, my disciplinarian, and most importantly my father.

I am asking for donations to the LLS (Leukemia and Lymphoma Society) in any amount you see feasible. All money raised goes directly to helping with not only research for a cure but also to helping families of people currently battling this nasty disease. Such as hotel rooms and traveling expenses to be with their loved ones while undergoing treatment. My goal is to raise $3000.00.

I am also putting together the 2nd annual PUTTIN’ CANCER TO SHAME GOLF TOURNEMENT. This event will be held at Valley Oaks Golf Course on July 26, 2013. You don’t have to be Tiger Woods or Phil Mickelson to play as it is a 4-Man Team Best Ball Scramble format. This event includes your Golf, Cart, Range balls, Tri Tip Lunch, and if you get registered before July 1st, an event T-Shirt. So get together with your golf buddies and come on out. Also for you Business owners out there this is a great chance to sponsor a hole. Please contact for further information. All donation are a tax write off.

Thank you so much for your support,

Kurt Weatherford

Or you can send a check made out to LLS to 1671 Wall Lane, Porterville, CA. 93257

Teams are made up of individuals. Without them, there is no team.

Welcome to my Team In Training home page.

I have a mission-to help find cures and more effective treatments for blood cancers. To accomplish that mission, I’m participating in a sports endurance event as a member of The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Team In Training. Like the other members of TNT, I will be raising funds to help find cures and better treatments for leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma. I’m improving the quality of my life by participating and with your support, I can help improve the quality of life for patients and their families as well.

Please make a donation in support of my efforts with Team In Training and help advance the research for cures.
