A team riding to save lives
Apr 30, 2012


The Blackstone Bike Team is training to participate in an endurance event, 100 miles cycling around Lake Tahoe and in Montauk as members 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. We are completing this event in honor of all individuals who are battling blood cancers. These people are the real heroes on our team, and we need your support to cross the ultimate finish line - a cure!


As a team, we can combine our efforts to save lives, to find cures, and to improve the quality of life for patients and their families.


As a team, we are riding…

…in honor of Lenore Estrada, a former employee and BX Bike Team alum.

…in memory of Brian Nabatian, a GSO colleague, and Craig Powell, a Restructuring colleague.

…in honor and in memory of many friends and family.


We also ride in honor of all those colleagues, friends, and family who have battled or continue to battle cancer today.


The LLS/Team-in-Training program raises much needed funds to help identify cures for Leukemia, Lymphoma, Hodgkins Lymphoma and Myeloma, and improving the quality of life for patients and their families. Did you know that LLS also leads the way in blood cancer research with many LLS funded advances already helping patients beyond those for whom they were originally developed, including solid tumors and auto-immune disease?


Thank you for your support!
