Racing for a Cure

I am training with Team in Training again to raise money for cancer research for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS)! This year, I am racing in memory of my dear friend Angela King Kinder who passed away in 2008 after battling sarcoma, for my Mom who survived breast cancer this past year, my friend Doug who came out of remission for CML, and for all who battle cancer. While LLS funds help stop leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin lymphoma and myeloma from taking more lives, they also help other cancer types too. Many of the drugs developed by LLS have been beneficial in other cancer patients as well.

Team in Training has been an amazing experience and one that has shown me there can be no rest until we find a cure for cancer. Here's one example: while training for the Ironman Augusta 70.3 with others from my TNT team, a woman left a napkin on my friend's car because it had a Team in Training sticker on it. The napkin said, "Thank you for racing with Team in Training. My son died from leukemia at the age of 6 in 1981." Had there been a cure, her son would have been my age today.

After that experience and seeing what cancer does to people I love, I couldn't turn down another chance to raise money to help find a cure. Please help me find a cure for cancer as I swim, bike and run for those who cannot. Together we can help cancer patients reach another birthday. Donate today!

Be sure to check back frequently to see my progress. Thanks for your


Love, Kate
