Racing to Save Lives
Aug 16, 2010

As you may have heard, I've decided to train for my very first endurance event, the 2011 Walt Disney World Half Marathon, held on January 8, 2011. Fortunately, I'm not going about this alone; instead, I'll be training with others as a member of Team in Training (TNT), The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's (LLS) endurance sports training program. TNT provides fantastic coaches, mentors and educational opportunities that will help me finish the 13.1 mile race.


Besides challenging myself to do something difficult (I've not even participated in a 5K race!) and uncommon, I'm also participating to help TNT raise money to help stop leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma from taking the lives of our friends and family members. Every four minutes someone is diagnosed with a blood cancer and every ten minutes someone dies from these terrible diseases. In spite of these grim statistics, the survival rate has risen from 4% in 1960 to 85% in the past decade; this is in part a result of the funds LLS has raised to aid researchers who are continually in search of cures for these diseases.


My fundraising goal this season is $2,500. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation to support my participation in TNT and help advance the Society's mission. Contributions can be made safely and securely online via the form in the navigation at right. If you'd prefer to mail your payment, checks made payable to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society; please e-mail me at tim@tim-weston.com and I will provide you with my mailing address.


On behalf of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, I want to thank you in advance for your love and support!


Sincerely,

Tim Weston
