Hello family and friends!
As many of you know, our son, Tucker Joseph, passed away suddenly on October 29th, 2011. Although he was only a little over five weeks old, our little man was strong! In order to honor the strength and memory of our baby boy, we will be running the Boston Marathon with Team in Training.
We decided to run for LLS (Leukemia and Lymphoma Society) because we wanted to help raise money to fund research in order to find a better cure rate for infant ALL (acute lymphoblastic leukemia). Tucker's condition was literally one in a million. The cure rate is basically zero. We just found out that we will be able to allocate 100% of your donations to infant ALL; this makes raising money and running the marathon even more personal for us.
Eric and I are so excited to run the marathon in honor of our son. In addition, we are happy to be supporting a cause that means so much to us. We had to raise $8,000 for LLS, and with your help, we did it...in record time!! From here on out, 100% of your donations go directly to infant ALL research! We would love to continue to raise as much money as possible for the cause, so please make a donation in support of our efforts with Team In Training and help advance the research for cures. We just found out that if we reach our goal of $50,000, a leukemia research study will be conducted in our family's honor!
- Saturday, 3/31: The Fours, Quincy, 7-11pm - Benefit Night. There will be tons of awesome raffle and silent auction prizes (lululemon attire, massages, spa packages, Sox tickets, etc.)
Thanks so much all for your support, encouragement, prayers and donations. We couldn't do this without you!
Ashley and Eric (Tucker's Team)
