Racing to Save Lives
Welcome to my Team In Training home page for the Nike Women's Marathon 2010.
I'm training to run in the Nike Women's Marathon in San Francisco on October 17th as a member of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's (LLS) Team In Training, Santa Barbara Chapter. All of us on Team In Training are raising funds to help stop leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin lymphoma and myeloma from taking more lives. Many of us have family members and friends who have been affected by these cancers. I am completing this event in honor of all individuals 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!
Please make a donation to support my participation in Team In Training and help advance LLS's mission. Your donations help fund research to find cures and better therapies and provide information and support so that patients and their families can have the best possible outcomes during their cancer experience. Please know that your donations are tax-deductible and the Society’s tax ID is 13-5644916. The goal of LLS is that at least 75% of all donations go directly to the cause, so I’m asking you to be as generous as possible. LLS was rated by Money magazine as one of the top ten charities for having the highest percentage of funds raised directly benefitting research and patient services.
I hope you will visit my web site often. Be sure to check back frequently to see my progress.
Also, I frequently write about my fundraising and marathon training on my blog, A Slice of Wife, at http://mbahnson.wordpress.com
Thanks for your support!
