Running for Roddy

Racing to Save Lives


Welcome to my Team In Training home page.


I'm training to participate in an endurance event 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. But, I am also doing so in memory of my friend, Roderick Ante, who passed away last year from his fight with lymphoma. Roderick lived life to the fullest. Often times, he would spontaneously decide to go on a road trip and, within hours, be in his car and on the road. Craving for a chili dog? Off to DC for Ben's Chili Bowl! Want a cheesesteak instead? Philly, here we come!


Roddy's love for music was immense. He attended so many concerts and shows in a year, it was a surprise that he didn't work for Billboard or Rolling Stone. If you ever needed help figuring out a song or artist, he could tell you - no matter how obscure or old the song was. If you wanted to add new artists into your iPod rotation, Roddy would be on your doorstep with a CD mix he burned for you. And, you would love everything on that CD! You'd want him on your trivia team - and not just for his nusic knowledge!


Roddy was special, not just to me, but to all his friends. These 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. Thanks for your support!
