Racing to Save Lives
Welcome to my Team In Training home page.
A new year, and a new endeavor. . .
I'm training to participate in a half marathon as a member of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's (LLS) Team In Training. We will be travelling to San Diego, CA on May 31st! All of us on Team In Training are raising funds to help stop leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin lymphoma and myeloma from taking more lives. I am completing this event in honor of my mom, who lost her battle with Multiple Myeloma on November 28, 2008, along with all the children and adults who are battling blood cancers. These people are the real heroes on our team, and we need your support to cross the ultimate finish line - a cure!
I need to raise a minimum of $3,700, however; my goal is to raise $5,000. 75 cents of every dollar you donate goes directly to research to combat blood cancer. Many of the medicines my mom took were researched using these very dollars! They were able to give her 6 wonderful years, see her four grandchildren, travel, and spend quality time with her many friends and family. I want to be one responsible for giving a parent their child's "normal" life back, and other patients an awesome quality of life for as long as they can!
Please make a donation to support my participation in Team In Training and help advance LLS's mission.
I hope you will visit my web site often. Be sure to check back frequently to see my progress. I will update with photos and mileage~
Thanks for your support!
