Racing to Save Lives
Welcome to my Team In Training home page.
As most of you know, Mike and I are getting married in May, and as the day gets closer Mike and I have decided to spend some more quality time with each other, some might think of other ways to do so than to sign up for a 1/2 marathon for the first time, but this is going to test our strength as a couple more than we can imagine, and as we do so we are contributing to a great cause!
We are training to participate in the San Francisco Kaiser Permanente half marathon in February 09 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!
A few months ago I received a call from one of my closest friends, Katherine Mertz, and she told me that her 4 year old niece, Mollie, was diagnosed with leukemia. Little Mollie has been battling for her life and has been a super trooper through everything thus far!
Please make a donation to support our participation in Team In Training, support Mollie in her recovery, 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!
Don't forget to donate to Mike as well!!
