Hiking to Save Lives

Welcome to my Team In Training home page!

It's rare to meet anyone these days that hasn't been touched by cancer. My mother passed away from cancer in 1994 and my belief is that by raising awareness and funding research for all types of cancers, there is better hope for a cure.

That's why I'm training to participate in an endurance event as a member of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's (LLS) Team In Training.

In May, with a group from around the county (including my friend Meghan pictured on the left,) we will hike deep into the Grand Canyon. This requires months of training and also a commitment to raise money with others on my team to help stop leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin lymphoma and myeloma from taking more lives.

I am completing this event in honor all individuals who are battling cancer. These people are the real heroes on our team, and we need your support to cross the ultimate finish line - a cure!

Please make a donation to support my participation in Team In Training and help advance LLS's mission. Your donation is fully tax deductable and every dollar counts.

Thanks for your support!
