Running for a CURE!

Running for a CURE!
Mar 24, 2010 by Lori Rasmussen

Inspired by: Maddie, Tricia, Mallory, and Mitzi!



Some "causes" begin with less than noble intent. I joined Team In Training (TNT) in the fall of 2007 to run with my neighbor and leukemia survivor, Carol. I never knew Carol when she was sick and today, you'd never guess that she'd been sick for even a day in her life. In 2007, I simply wanted to pick up running to get in shape, meet a few new friends, and maybe do a little good in the process.


Fast forward to 2010...


In April 2010, I traveled to Nashville to run with two survivors: Tricia and Mallory. Thanks in part to research done by LLS, both of these fabulous women have kicked their illnesses and are able to give back by raising more money for this fight.


On October 17, I will join another survivor, Mitzi, as we take on the Nike Women's Marathon in San Francisco. This will be my 5th fundraising event with Team in Training! And it won't be my last!


What started simply, has become a year-round quest. People keep getting diagnosed. Some are cured. Others are not. I have personally shared the joy of those who beat these horrid illnesses and have cried to learn of those who have lost their fight. I am now part of something that cannot end until our scientists find a CURE.


Please join me with your prayers and your donations.
