Why?
Jun 10, 2013 by Matt Templeton

Many people run with Team in Training. They each have their own reasons for doing it. I hate thinking about my reason for running. I wish I didn't have to feel like I should run, but I do. My daughter was diagnosed at age 3 with AML.

That day...that horrible day, changed our entire family's life. Grandparents, cousins, uncles, and aunts were all immediately effected. Lindsay was 3, her little brother was 15 months old.

In the blink of an eye, we were all living in the hospital knowing Lindsay had a 50% chance of survival. The treatment she had to undergo, had a very real risk of doing what the cancer was trying to do.

I hate that day so much.


I do not want any parent to have to face that day. THAT is why I'm running.

The problem is it takes a lot more than running a marathon. It takes money. It takes money to fund research to find better medicines. It takes money to fund programs to assist families that have had that horrible day.

I'm asking you for a donation for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

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


Welcome to my Team In Training home page.


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.
