I'm running for a cure!
Jul 09, 2008 by Clara Webster

Celebrating 25 with a cause by racing to Save Lives!



Welcome to my Team In Training home page!



For those who don't know me, my name is Clara Webster and I turned 25 years old on July 31, 2008. I made a promise to myself that during my 25th year of life I will do three things .



1. Become a runner.

2. Run a race.

3. Give back! (in as many ways that I can!)



Well with these goals in mind, I've joined the Northern California Team in Training team and I'm training for my first ever endurance event as a member of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's (LLS) Team In Training.



I'm training for the 2008 Honolulu Marathon on Dec. 14, 2008. A what? Yes, you heard right, a marathon!



All of us on my Team In Training team are raising funds to help stop leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin lymphoma and myeloma from taking more lives. Did you know that leukemia is the number one disease-killer of children under 15 and lymphoma is the leading killer of men and women under 35? Did you know that every five minutes someone in the United States learns that they have leukemia, lymphoma or myeloma? Until I joined The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Team In Training, neither did I.



I am completing the Honolulu Marathon in honor of all individuals who are battling blood cancers, especially those 13 individuals my team has chosen as team honorees. These people are the real heroes on our team, and we need your support to cross the ultimate finish line - a cure!



I need your help to reach my personal goal of raising $4,500 for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society , so I am asking you to please make a donation (ANY AMOUNT WILL HELP) to support my participation in Team In Training and help advance LLS's mission.



I hope you will visit my web site often. Be sure to check back frequently to see my progress. Thanks for your support!



PEACE, LOVE & a CURE!



Love, Clara
