2,500. The number of dollars I plan to raise this year. With your help.



Welcome to my Team in Training page.


Thank you for taking a few moments to visit to learn more about what this program is and why I’m involved.


Team in Training is the world’s largest endurance athletics training program and the most successful fundraising program for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. 75% of every dollar that comes into LLS goes straight to support their mission, which is to cure leukemia, lymphoma, myeloma and Hodgkin’s disease and to support patients and their families.


My husband is no doubt alive today because of all the great work that has been done by LLS to fund necessary research and accelerate new cures to patients who need them. TNT is how I say thank you for his health! TNT is how I pay it forward and how I do what I can to make sure that nobody loses their spouse, or child, or parent to cancer.


Join me. Join me in the fight against blood cancers by making a difference today, make a donation, forward this website on to your family and friends. I’ll do all the running, and biking, and swimming, all I need is your support. Blood cancer is blind – it chooses people we love and it’s never fair. Today, we can all be a part of a cure.


Thank you for your partnership and support and GO TEAM!


All the best,

Emily
