Racing to Save Lives
to my Team In Training home page.!
I'm training to
participate in the Disney Marathon in January 2010 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! Advances in treatments, made possible through research have greatly increased survival rates in the last 50 years- so lets help them increase those rates to 100%!
I know, I know, you're thinking I'm nuts for trying to train for a marathon while taking care of triplet toddlers. Don't worry, I've got it figured out- I don't plan to do any cleaning or laundry for the next 6 months, so that should free up some time:) But seriously, I know I can do the training, as it's something I've always wanted to do, and I have my best friend, Christa, training remotely from NY with me. What I need from you all, is to help me reach my fundraising goal. 2,400.00 is a lot of money, but if you all just donate a little bit, I will get there.
I know how tough it is, especially now (believe me, I know!) but every donation makes a difference, and no donation is too small.
I will be keeping track of my training progress, and doing some fundraising using my blog as well, stop by often to see how it's going. lyonstriplets.blogspot.com
You can easily donate right through this page. It's quick, easy and secure. Or, if you would prefer, you can write a check payable to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, and send it to me. If you need my address, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I hope you will visit my web site often.
Be sure to check back frequently to see my progress. Your support means the world to me- I love you all!!
