Racing to Save Lives




Welcome to my Team In Training home page!




We're at it again! Jason and I just finished training for the Avia Wildflower Triathlon that was on May 3, 2009, and now we're training for Vineman, a half-Ironman race scheduled for July 19, 2009, as members of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's (LLS) Team In Training. All of us in Team In Training are raising funds to help stop leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin lymphoma and myeloma from taking more lives. The LLS is the world's largest voluntary health organization dedicated to funding blood cancer research and providing education and patient services. They have invested more than $550 million in research which has led to or contributed to many breakthrough cancer treatments!


My late grandmother, Gail, lost her battle with Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma last April. Watching her fight for her life was an eye opening experience that made me realize the urgency in finding a cure. We are completing this event in memory of her and in honor of all individuals who are battling blood cancers. These people 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 our participation in Team In Training and help advance the LLS's mission. Last year we raised a total of $5,715!! Please help us surpass last year's amount by reaching our goal of $7,000. Together, we can make a difference!


Please ask about our corporate sponsorships. With a minimum donation of $1,000, you can get your business's logo on our race day singlets and the local chapter's banners.
