Can you believe it, I have finally made it to the homestretch! After training for 16 weeks, I am officially ready to conquer the Nike Women’s Half Marathon this weekend. 

I have nearly met my fundraising goal of $2900 for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS)! I hope that by the end of race weekend I will be able to say that not only have met this goal, but exceeded it.  I still need your help to see that I reach my goal.  The best part is that 100% of every dollar OVER my initial $2900 goal will go toward funding research, patient services, education programs, and financial aid for patients and their families. 

My Honore Heroes

Each donation helps accelerate finding a cure for leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma. Nearly 958,000 Americans are battling these blood cancers.  I am hoping that my participation in Team In Training will help bring them hope and support.

Today was my Zumba Party Fundraiser!!! We all had a GREAT time for a great cause, and I am blessed to be closer to my fundraising goal.

In less than two weeks I will be traveling to Washington, DC to run in my first half marathon.  I still cannot get over how time has flown! It was not that long ago that I was thinking "can I really do this?", and here I am, nearly ready to go.  With the help of the Team In Training program and the awesome coaches I know I am ready to lace up my running shoes, cross the start line, and even cross the finish line.  But with every step I make towards my goals I am reminded of all the cancer patients who are running their own race, one that is way tougher than 13.1 miles, sometimes an ongoing race, and sadly sometimes a race that crosses a different finish line.  This is why every dollar I raise is so important!  I am running to help fund LLS so that they can continue their research to find cures and better treatments for leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma; and I know that patients of all cancers benefit from their research.

This is why I still need your help with my fundraising!!!  I am so thankful for everyone who has supported me to get me this far!  I am hoping that if you haven't you still can take some time to support me in this effort.  Every donation is GREATLY appreciated!!!

Remember there are a few ways you can help in support of my efforts with Team In Training and help advance the research for cures (and there will be more to come!):

  1. Just donate here

  2. Shop my ongoing Yankee Candle fundraiser, 40% of sales go to my fundraising:https://www.yankeecandlefundraising.com/ycfroot/ycfwcgi.exe?_V4=Process&_Func=enterWebsiteFromEmail&publicKey=EgzC5TQl2EBwX4sXfDj0EZZkjVPhyOct

Training continues and we are all running further and building endurance.  Today was our "Honored and Remembered Heroes" run. A GREAT way to remember why we get up early on Saturday mornings to run together, why we make sure we get our weekday runs in, and why we raise funds; its all for those who cannot, but need us to!

Training continues, and today was a great morning for a run!!!  We got 4.75 miles in today. My running is getting better, I can pretty much keep pace with the coach.  There is still plenty of room for improvement, but thankfully there is time to improve.

REMINDER:

I am doing a fundraising challenge and I hope all of you can help out! Through today (Saturday) at 6pm EVERYONE who donates $10 or more on this page will be entered into a drawing for a $25 Starbucks gift card.

AND if you share this post with friends and family and they donate you get an extra entry into the drawing (just have them mention in the comments you sent them :-)). So PLEASE share my fundraiser with your friends + family by posting it to Facebook + Twitter.

YAY, I finally made it to a team training!!!

It was my first Saturday morning run with the Nike DC and RNR San Diego teams.  Despite the early morning start and my lack of being a morning person,  I had a great time getting to meet my fellow team mates and training with the coaches.  In the end it felt GREAT to get a run in so early in the day!

I am really looking forward to what is to come with the teams, our upcoming training, and our races.  I am feeling much more comfortable in my running, I am confident I will complete my race well before the "Sag Wagon".  But there is still plenty of fundraising to do, I hope you will join me by supporting my efforts.

Welcome to my Team in Training Fundraising Page!

So glad you made it to my fundraising page...let's save some lives!

I have signed up for the Nike Women's Half Marathon in Washington D.C. this upcoming April as a member of The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Team In Training. Like the other members of TNT, not only have I committed to running 13.1 miles but I have also committed to raising funds to help find cures and better treatments for leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma. Many of you know me as an outspoken advocate and fundraiser for breast and ovarian cancer so while this commitment is a little different, it is also near and dear to my heart.

My family has been blessed with many supporters through the years while my sisters' (two of them pictured) and my brother faced their cancer battles. At times those same supporters needed support themselves. One of those supporters is my brother-in-law (pictured) who faced his own battle with Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL). Through this commitment, I have made it a mission to support him and help find cures and more effective treatments for blood cancers. The research that has been conducted on blood cancer patients benefits patients of all cancers, including breast cancer patients.

To accomplish that mission, I’m improving the quality of my life by participating and with your support, I can help improve the quality of life for patients and their families as well.

Please make a donation in support of my efforts with Team In Training and help advance the research for cures.
