Weekly sponsor: $5.10
Jul 06, 2015 by James Lee

If you were waiting for a low mileage week to sponsor my training for Chicago, you chose well. This week my longest effort was a paltry 5.1 miles on the treadmill. Care to sponsor me by my mileage? Only $5.10 this week! You won't see a smaller number, and the money goes to help fight blood cancer. Good stuff!

Hey, buddy, can you spare $6.32?
Jun 28, 2015 by James Lee

Trying something new. Here's my longest run of the week as I train for Chicago... 6.32 miles, which included a brutal 1,339 feet of elevation gain (including a section 0.6 miles long at nearly 16% grade - yikes!).

 

Anyhow, I've always said, I'll run the miles so you don't have to - but will you help fund the research that will lead to a cure to blood cancer? Will you match my longest run, a dollar a mile? It's cheap this week, only $6.32, and every dollar counts!

 

Thanks in advance!

40% Complete
Jun 08, 2015 by James Lee

There are 18 weeks to go until Chicago, which means my training is starting to pick up.

 

You can run a marathon with as little as 16 weeks of training, but it's not my favorite thing to do. Running a marathon is hard work! I plan on logging at least 450 more miles before the marathon. Over the last two months, I've averaged 20 miles a week, so I have a strong enough base to get this thing kicked off properly.

 

In the meantime, I continue to rely on your support. We're currently 40% of the way to my personal fundraising goal of $4,000. If you've already given, thank you. If you haven't yet, please consider a donation. No size is too small, and I appreciate every bit of support that is offered.

Last Day: Your Donation? Quadrupled.
Jun 08, 2015 by James Lee

May 31 was the last day to give a dollar and have it turn into four. For every dollar given in May, I had sponsors that matched it three times!

 

While that portion of my fundraising campaign is over, we are still working hard to fight blood cancer, and I could still use your support. Even the price of a couple cups of coffee is appreciated.

 

Thanks in advance for your help.

Four for One
Jun 08, 2015 by James Lee

For a limited time, your funds will go four times as far in the fight against blood cancers. I have anonymous sponsors who are willing to convert your $1 donation into $4. Or $25 into $100. There's an extra $3,000 to be claimed here, and I need your help to bring it in.

You already know this is personal for me, and on top of all the good work being done at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, you have my sincere thanks and appreciation for your support.

<Edit: while the matching campaign has ended, we are still doing great work with The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society; your continued support is tremendously valued. Thank you!>
