Welcome to my Team In Training home page.

You are probably thinking to yourself that you've seen an email from me like this before. That's because you probably did. I just successfully finished 3 Olympic distance triathlons since Nov. 2012: Marin County (Nov. '12), Lavaman (Mar. '13) & Wildflower (May '13).

I am very committed to the mission to help find cures & more effective treatments for blood cancers. Towards that mission, I’m participating in another sports endurance event as a member of The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Team In Training. Like the other members of TNT, I will be raising funds to help find cures and better treatments for leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma. I’m improving the quality of my life by participating and with your support, I can help improve the quality of life for patients and their families as well.

My personal honoree is still my brother-in-law, Peter Cole, battling Multiple Myeloma, a blood cancer that is treatable but not cureable. With continued chemotherapy, Peter will be able to go into remission but will never be completely free from this disease. With your donation, more research will be funded so that others like Peter can go on to have normal lives. Peter has incredible resolve and has been able to taken control of his health by changing his diet and personal habits. It is not uncommon for him to cycle 50 miles or more in a single day. He even led a 2000 ft. climb in the mountains of Vermont the morning of his daughter Lauren's wedding this past August and walked his son Daniel down the aisle in April. Peter's level of fitness was very high before his diagnosis and he will continue his fight the rest of his life. It is so important that the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society receive funds to continue research to help Peter and others like him to get the treatment they need so they can have hope of living a normal and healthy life.

Won't you help me in my fundraising efforts? I'm going to swim a mile, cycle 25 miles and run 6.2 miles next year to help cure leukemia, lymphoma and other blood cancers like multiple myeloma that my brother-in-law is now fighting. In return for my fundraising efforts I will receive professional coaching to help me complete this triathlon. I need your help to reach my fundraising goal of $3,300. Any amount you can donate will help so please make a generous donation in support of my efforts with Team In Training and help advance the research for cures.

Please make a tax deductible donation of any amount in support of my efforts with Team In Training and help advance the research for cures. Thank you so much!!! This really mean a lot to me.

Yours in friendship and health,
