Racing to Save Lives

Welcome to my Team In Training Homepage!

Although it does not show, I have already raised $1,220.00! I am half way there!

I'm training to participate in an endurance event as a member of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's (LLS) Team In Training. I will be running a 1/2 marathon (13.1 miles) in April 2009. All of us on Team In Training are raising funds to help stop leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin lymphoma and myeloma from taking more lives. I am completing this event in honor of my father, Eric Bennett, who was diagnosed with Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia this past July. Fortunately, the leukemia was caught in its earliest stage and my father’s prognosis is good. But, we need a cure!

Let’s join together to help cure blood cancers! Let’s keep it from being a problem for anyone every again! Please make a donation to support my participation in Team In Training and help advance LLS's mission. My goal is to raise $2,400.00 by April 1, 2009. No donation is too big or too small and all donations are 100% tax deductable. Donate today and help save lives!

On New Years Day, I received a phone call from one of my favorite people, Tina Legg. Her 20-year-old nephew, Daniel Hamilton, was just diagnosed with ALL (Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia). He is currently receiving chemo treatments and needs your thoughts and prayers.

Thirty five years ago, only 5% of children diagnosed with ALL survived. Today, 85% of children with ALL will LIVE thanks to the research funded by projects like Team In Training. Let's find a cure!
