Running for a Cure



Kelly's Team In Training Fundraising Page



It's been five amazingly fast years since the last time I participated in a Team in Training event. As most of you know, Stephen and I trained and ran together in the 2003 Dublin Marathon in celebration of his victory against lymphoma. Now, I am fundraising again to celebrate his five year "cured" bill of health. Cancer patients continue to endure five years of check-ups and blood tests until the doctor utters the word "cured".



One lesson I have learned through it all is that while the body might be rid of the disease, the mind is forever altered. Our lives have been filled to the brim with challenge after bigger challenge after yet a bigger challenge. Just when I think Stephen has reached the max of all events, another crazy race appears. Luckily, this year is simply a repeat 100 mile race at the Vermont 100. At least I know to expect 20+ hours of constant running and crew support. The kids and I are pros at spectatorship!



And while we have had our victories to celebrate, we have also experienced many more battles that have been lost or are still ongoing. Since my last fundraising effort, I lost my grandmother to leukemia and we have heard of too many people, some friends and other distant acquaintances that have started their battle against a blood related cancer. There is still work to be done to help fight these cancers that often affects the unsuspecting, particularly children and young adults.



So, once again, I will ask for your support. This year I am training for the Nike Women's Marathon in San Francisco. Perhaps you have your own victory to celebrate, battle to fight or cancer patient to support. To honor your own personal experience or to graciously support my effort, please make a donation to help advance Leukemia and Lymphoma Society's mission of finding a cure.



I hope you will visit this page often to check on my fundraising progress or be sure to visit Stephen's blog for updates on training. And please remember that 100% of your donation is tax deductible. Thanks for your support!



Kelly
