Racing to Save Lives

Hi Everyone!

I'm training to participate in the Cox Providence Rhode Races Half Marathon 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 part, to achieve a personal goal of mine to complete a half marathon, but also in support of all individuals who are battling blood cancers. With your donation, we can cross the ultimate finish line and find a cure for this awful disease.

Please make a onation to support my participation in Team In Training and help advance LLS's mission. No matter the amount, every donation helps bring us closer to a cure.

For those looking to keep track of my training (or searching for a good laugh), I'm blogging about my training -- the aches, pains and victory of it all -- at my Web site , www.trainingtalia.wordpress.com. It should be a cool journey.

Wish me luck, donate and thanks for your support!

With Love,
