Fundraising for A Great Cause!!!

Fundraising for A Great Cause!!!
Aug 14, 2008 by Anya Naschak

We Did It!!!



On November 22, I finished riding 109.5 miles in 9 hours. It was all thanks to people like you! I have photos and notes from the road at my blog (http://tntendurance.blogspot.com/), and I'm still short of my fundraising goal, so don't let this opportunity to contribute to a wonderful cause pass you by!

It's Almost Here!!!



We are only a little more than 2 weeks away from the big day! I'm up to 80 miles now (check it out at: http://tntendurance.blogspot.com/). But I still have a bit to go on the fundraising front. Thanks to everyone who has been so supportive, but please think about going that extra mile and either donating again or telling your friends all about it!



Together we CAN find a cure for blood cancers...and I'll see all of you at the finish line!!!



Racing to Save Lives



Welcome to my Team In Training home page.



Anya is doing an endurance event? WHAT? I know, I know, I always said I thought people who do long runs, or long rides are nuts...but sometimes, you realize it is not just about you.



As many of you know, I have been in transition in my life, and trying to figure out what to do "next." In the meantime, I have felt pretty selfish for not doing more to help those who really need it. I have always wanted to help people, and committing to this ride and to raising money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS), is just one small step to contributing to a cause larger than myself.



When you finish reading the information I have included below, I please join me in contributing to this great cause, and sponsoring me in this event!



So here are the details.



I'm training to participate in El Tour de Tucson, a 109-mile bike ride, as a member of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's (LLS) Team In Training.



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 all individuals who are battling blood cancers, to find a cure for blood cancer, and help those fighting blood cancer deal with treatment. These people are fighting hard, working hard, and a 100+ mile bike ride, or a small donation to LLS doesn't begin to compare to the challenges they face. I 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. All donations are 100% tax deductible, and 75% of funds are guaranteed to go directly to LLS' projects, not administrative costs!



Beginning next week, I will also be keeping a running tab on my progress in the Facebook cause I have created for the event, as well as on my blog.



I believe in this cause, and any donation (however small), will help me reach my goal.



Thanks for your support!



Anya





Important LLS Facts You Should Know:



A donation of $25 provides patients and their loved ones with FREE booklets that contain up-to-date information on their disease and help make them informed decisions about their treatment options.



A donation of $50 makes possible a Family Support group with a trained facilitator where comfort can be found and experiences can be shared among patients and family members.



A donation of $100 helps supply laboratory researchers with supplies and materials critical to carrying out their search for cures.



A donation of $150 provides 10 patients access to an informational teleconference about their specific blood cancer.



A donation of $300 trains 25 peer volunteers who can provide emotional support to newly diagnosed patients.



A donation of $500 provides financial aid to blood cancer patients to use during treatment, regardless of income, diagnosis or duration of treatment. This money can cover everything from transportation to and from treatment to the cost of bone marrow transplant.
