My Fundraising Page
Jan 15, 2011
I have signed up for my fifth event with Team in Training. Starting January 8, 2011, 54 teammates and I started training for IronTeam and Ironman Arizona. We will be spending the next 11 months training with the IronTeam. On November 20, 2011 the IronTeam will take on Ironman Arizona.
I am ready for the challenges this presents: both physical and mental. I am ready to participate yet again in something bigger than me: Team in Training.
I am ready to train, but I still need your help to succeed in my fund raising goal of $10,000 for LLS and support one of the few charities that still provides support and financial services for individuals fighting blood cancers, as well as funding research and public awareness campaigns.
When deciding on a specific amount to donate, please remember that any amount will help. For example, $25 could pay for the cost of a patient’s chemotherapy drug prescription co-payment, $50 could register one person to be a bone marrow donor and $75 could provide HLA (bone marrow) typing for a family member of a leukemia patient.
Meanwhile, feel free to keep in touch as I train and work to achieve my fund raising goal and my event goal of completing Ironman Arizona. In fact, I may reach out to you to share thoughts and reflections and adventures! There will be highs and lows, challenges and triumphs, adventures and reflective time. I look forward to each experience and sharing them with you.
