Racing to Save Lives

Hello dear friends and family,



Crazy as it sounds, I am preparing to bike ride 109 miles in Tucson this November to raise money for research in blood cancers.



Nearly a million Americans are battling blood cancers such as leukemia or lymphoma, and 53,000 people each year die of these diseases. Leukemia alone causes more deaths than any other cancer among children and young adults.



Like many of you, I have dear friends and family who have these diseases. Some people, like the newsman Ed Bradley who died of chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) in 2006, live with them for years. Others, like late night talk show host Tom Snyder who died of CLL in 2007, succumb quickly after being diagnosed.



The common thread among these and many other victims is this: when leukemia decides to worsen, there are few effective treatments and there is no cure.



I will be participating in a 109-mile bike race in Tucson this November to raise funds for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS). I'm asking you to help by making a donation to my fundraising campaign.



This is my first long-distance bike ride ever and the prospect is daunting! But the need is great, and I am determined to do this to support leukemia and lymphoma research. Please use the link in this email to donate online quickly and securely – plus if you’d like, you can learn about my progress. You will receive a confirmation of your donation by email and I will be notified as soon as you make your donation. Just click on: http://pages.teamintraining.org/cpa/tucson08/knewhouse



On behalf of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and all those who are battling these fatal diseases, thank you very much for your support. I greatly appreciate your generosity.



With my warmest regards,

Katharine



P.S. I would appreciate it if you would forward this email to as many people as you can to encourage them to donate as well. Thanks again.

    "What an exciting goal. Tom and I ran our first marathon with Team in Training in Anchorage Alaska and our third as mentors in Vancouver Canada. (I used to joke that the only way I got to travel was to run 26.2 miles while there. ) Both of those experiences were wonderful and very rewarding. Team in Training is very supportive and does a wonderful job at raising money for an excellent cause. A friend who ran her first marathon years ago with TNT ( and died 22 month latter of of Uterine cancer) gave me a card before we ran. On it she wrote, " The miracle isn't that I finished... The miracle is that I had the courage to start" John Bingham, The Penguin Chronicles...... Believe in Yourself. Those words carried me 26.2 miles. It is an pleasure to support you and TNT, Go Team Sally and Tom."
