Racing to Save Lives
Welcome to my Team In Training page!
My name is Victoria, and I'm training to run in the Long Branch Half Marathon (that's 13.1 miles) 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. As the mother of a little boy, born in March of 2008, I can't just stand by as this disease - so often a children's disease - takes more lives. Leukemia causes more deaths among children and young people than any other cancer. In the United States, six people die from blood cancer every hour. That's about 145 people every day. I am completing this race in honor of anyone, of any age, who is battling blood cancer. These people are 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.
