Teams are made up of individuals. Without them, there is no team.


Welcome to my Team In Training fundraising page!


I trained for and ran my first marathon - the Marine Corps Marathon - with Team in Training in 2006. Every since that marathon, I've dreamed of running with TNT again. I'll never forget my experience that day.


While I ran the MCM, I had people - both fellow runners as well as spectators - all along the way thank for me what I was doing. I'll never forget how much motivation that gave me to keep going when those miles got tougher and tougher. When I was ready to give up around mile 20, a coach from another TNT team caught up with me because he noticed I was struggling. He told me the story of his girlfriend who was diagnosed with leukemia and only lived a few short months after her diagnosis. As he had me in tears, he reminded my why I was on this journey and why I needed to keep fighting.


I have a mission-to help find cures and more effective treatments for blood cancers. To accomplish that mission, I’m participating in a sports endurance event as a member of The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Team In Training. Like the other members of TNT, I will be raising funds to help find cures and better treatments for leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma. I’m improving the quality of my life by participating and with your support, I can help improve the quality of life for patients and their families as well.


Please make a donation in support of my efforts with Team In Training and help advance the research for cures.


Thank you!


Kristen
