Racing to Save Lives

Welcome to my Team In Training home page.

I'm training to run the Rock-n-Roll Marathon in San Diego 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. We all have a family member, friend, or hear of someone who suffer from these diseases. These people are the real heroes on our team, and we need your support to cross the ultimate finish line - a cure!

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) is the world's largest voluntary health organization dedicated to funding blood cancer research and providing education and patient services. We have invested more than $600 million in research since 1949 - over $71 million in 2008 - specifically targeting leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma. Last year alone, LLS made 6.3 million contacts with patients, caregivers and healthcare professionals.

We all understand times are tough right now, but anything you can contribute will go to a great cause. Please make a donation to support my participation in Team In Training and help advance LLS's mission. All donations are 100% tax deductible. You can make your donation right now by clicking on to the "donate now" button. Please send this link along to friends, family, co-workers, anyone willing to help the cause.

I hope you will visit my web site often. Be sure to check back frequently to see my progress up till May 31, 2009. (the day I run 26.2 miles!!!)

Thanks for your support!
