Winners will be announced August 1!

Let's kill cancer!
May 15, 2013

After years of dreaming about running a marathon, I'm finally sucking it up and doing it. I will be running my very first 26.2 in the Chicago Marathon on October 13, 2013….on the exact day I am 26 and 2 months old. Cute, right?

More importantly, I'm running for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Some of you may know I spent several years in the marketing department at BloodCenter of Wisconsin. I had the opportunity to work with some amazing, brave people who were affected by blood-related diseases. It only seemed fitting to dedicate my first marathon to them.

Join me in fight against blood cancer. All donations, no matter how small, are greatly appreciated.

Thank you for your support! And for helping me punch cancer in the face.

    "Hey Jen, we haven't met at CFSBK but I'm happy to help you out in your fundraising goals (plus get a chance at some sweet prizes - please put all my chances toward the private session with Noah, I could use some focused work on my olympic lifts). I too am running Chicago though I am woefully behind in my training. Hope yours is going better. This is a great cause and it hits home for me. My good friend who was a marathon runner and inspired me to run my first in 2010 suffered and ultimately lost his battle against non Hodgkin's lymphoma. So I wish you luck in kicking ass at both raising money to defeat these cancers and kicking ass in the marathon!"
