Racing to Save Lives...Again!
Welcome to my Team In Training home page!
Hi everyone and welcome to a new decade! 2010!!!! I decided to switch marathons and I'm now training for the Shamrock Marathon in Virginia Beach, VA!!!! I'm still going to rock a Full (26.2 mile) marathon on March 21st, 2010 as a member of The Leukemia &
Lymphoma Society's (LLS) Team In Training. This is my 5th Marathon! My theme is (Five for 35) as I will be turning 35 on January 16th.
All of us on Team In Training are raising funds to help create a world free of cancer. I am completing this event in honor of my mother Marguerite "Sauti" Wills that is battling ovarian and stomach cancer. She was diagnosed August 10th, 2009 just one month after I relocated back to the east coast. She is a fighter and has already started her chemotherapy. She getting stronger and her most recent doctor's report was good. He stated, "Your mother has come a long way and is on her way to regaining strength!"
We accept all prayers and thoughts at this time. I'm also running in memory of my grandfather, "Papa" Lawrence Wills, Sr.
They are my personal heroes as well as everyone who is battling cancer...the real heroes on our team, and we need your support to cross the ultimate finish line - a cure!
Please make a donation to support my participation in Team In Training and help advance LLS's mission. Whether it's $25, $50, $75, $100. or even more. Any donation make a difference! Remember it's never too early to start making tax deductible donations for 2010, start the year with a bang!!!!! My overall goal is to raise $1,900 by February 1st! So help me crush my goal!
I'm now up to ten miles of training as of January 16th (my 35th bday). We are steadily creeping up to 20! The winter has been harsh but I still have to train!
I hope you will visit my web site often. Be sure to check back frequently to see my progress and to see how my Mommy is doing too.
Thanks for your support! Also the picture is of Mommy, my sister Ayana (RIP) and me in 1984! Mom you can make it!!!!
Peace and Love,
