Racing to Save Lives

Here I go again! I'm training and fundraising with Team In Training (TNT) of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. A few years back, I ran the 2007 P.F. Chang's Phoenix Marathon with the TEAM in honor of my friend, Carter, who passed away from lymphoma in 2006. Back then I raised $4,400 for TNT!

Now, I am training to ride America's Most Beautiful Bike Ride, a century (100-mile) bike ride at gorgeous Lake Tahoe this summer ( 2010). This time, my goal is to raise $4,500. It's a lofty goal, but with your help, I believe I can reach it. The funds will go to pay for much needed cancer research and patient services.

I ride for Carter, but I am also riding for my boss, teammate and 20-year survivor, Maureen, and for my Honored Hero and teammate, Lyndon.

You are probably thinking, "Hmm, that's quite the sweet event you are doing, Javi." And I would tell you that you're right. It's going to be an amazing ride with my TNT teammates, in an incredible setting. However, that doesn't take away from the seriousness of the purpose. To put it simply, I AM RAISING FUNDS TO HELP FIND A CURE FOR BLOOD CANCER.

Each donation helps accelerate finding a cure for leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma. More than 823,000 Americans are battling these blood cancers. I am hoping that my participation in Team In Training will help bring them hope and support.

So please, dig deep into your wallets, pockets, between the seats of your car, whatever...and make a contribution today. No amount is too small. The donation is 100% tax-deductible and you will feel good doing it.

Don't wait any longer. Stop reading this and hit that "Donate Now" button. I will have the opportunity to ride along one of the most scenic lakeshores in America, but more importantly, we will be making a difference in the fight against cancer and saving lives!!

Thank you very much for your generosity!
