Racing to Save Lives
Welcome to my life-saving, feel-good Team In Training home page!
I'm sure many of you have wondered where I went after my last Team In Training event (San Antonio, Texas - 2008) - but never fear, Jacqueline is here! I decided to give my family, friends, and co-workers (all of the above gratefully known as MY FAVORITE DONORS) a break from donating, and time to catch up with their own finances during the tumultuous economy which we have been experiencing. This year I have once again joined forces with Team In Training - this time for the Chicago Marathon on October 10, 2010.
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 all individuals who are battling blood cancers, with a special emphasis on a dear friend of mine who's parents are both fighting with these blood cancers. These people are the real heroes on our team, and we need your support to cross the ultimate finish line - a cure!
My fundraising minimum for this event is $1,000 and I am confident that together we will be able to surpass this amount in a jiffy which is why I have upped the ante and set my personal goal at $1,500. Please make a tax deductible donation to support my participation in Team In Training and help advance LLS's mission. More donations = more research = an eventual cure!
Although this event may seem far off, I hope that you donate early on and continue to visit my website to track my progress.
I cannot thank you enough for the tremendous support!
