Crystal's Swim, Bike & Run Against Leukemia



Racing for Daisy.



Welcome to my fundraising page for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Team-In-Training (TNT).



I'm training for the Pacific Grove Olympic-distance triathlon in September (translation: 1.5K Swim, 40K Bike, and 10K Run) to raise funds that help in the fight against leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin lymphoma and myeloma. I'm racing in honor of all those individuals battling blood cancers, but most of all, to honor my friend Daisy Hebb, who was recently diagnosed with Leukemia in late January.



Since meeting Daisy on a 6-day trek around the highest peak in Southern Peru, she's inspired me to raft insane rivers, climb ruins, learn to dance salsa and now to train for my first triathlon as she continues to fight her cancer with a stem cell transplant beginning mid-June.



Please make a donation to support finding a cure.



Thank you!
