Racing to Save Lives



Welcome to my Team In Training home page.



I'm doing it again! I'm training for another marathon - this time I'll be running the Walt Disney World Marathon in January 2009.



This year, I'm training 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. These people are the real heroes on our team, and we need your support to cross the ultimate finish line - a cure!



Many of you have helped with my previous fundraising campaigns - and I am eternally grateful for those wonderful donations! - but I NEED YOUR HELP AGAIN! Please make a donation to support my participation in Team In Training and help advance LLS's mission. Each donation helps accelerate cures for leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma and brings hope to the patients and families who are on the front lines of the battle against these diseases.



My goal is to raise $4000. All contributions are 100% tax-deductible. Wouldn't you rather give money to help this worthy cause than pay it in taxes? Donate now!



Thank you for your generosity and support! I will be thinking of each you as I cross the finish line in Florida this January!



Lori

    "Jean, Since you have COMPLETELY cut me and my family off from contacting OUR children I am leaving you this message here on your charity site. You told me 3 years ago that you would do anything to keep me from being in the kids lives. You have purposely denied me contact with them physically and via phone by denying me visitation and not giving me a phone number to contact them... You are no attempting to have Jimmy Maddox adopt them without my consent and petitioned the courts to do so. You have spun the fact that you have denied me my rights into making it appear that I have abandoned them... You let my mother and sister have contact with them only if they did not tell me so and they could not tell me your phone number so I could contact them... You are a spin doctor who has flim flammed your family and friends into believing your lies. Now your attempting to fraud the courts with the same lies. I gave you my address to serve me the summons but you will not do so now. The sherrifs came to my sisters house in Maryland, my last known address you had, she told them I did not live there. I called the Anne Arundel County office and told them that I lived in Minnesota now. They told me they would send the summons back to Georgia and tell them I was in Minnesota. I then told you my address here, 312 N Main Ave, Park Rapids, MN 56470... You have not responded to me so I can only assume that you and your lawyer feel you have met the criteria in Georgia Adoption Laws that I have abandoned them and you can not find me... I will not and will never give up my rights willingly... My name is Rodney Grieger... My number is 443-949-4773... Please call me and have Ryan and Hailey call also..."
