Give Run Cure
Mar 26, 2012

Welcome to my Team In Training home page.

I am raising funds for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) as a participant in their Team In Training program and I'm asking you to help by making a donation to my fundraising campaign. Team in Training is preparing me for the Tamapla Headlands 50K ultra marathon trail race on August. 25, 2012.

I would like you to be part of a unique fundraising community to bring awareness and more importantly find a cure for leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma. I have decided to partner with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and Team In Training (TNT) to raise money for this important cause while running 32 miles to show my support for everyone who is impacted by a blood disease. I have self trained for all my marathons, and by joining The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Team In Training program for the first time I will actually have a coach to help me to perform at my best at the marathon. But this is not about me. This is all about finding a cure.

I lost my father to leukemia many years ago. This will be an opportunity to celebrate him and others who have also passed away, and to help find a cure and support those who currently are impacted by a blood cancer.

My commitment to ultramarathoning has been the biggest spiritual changing event in my life. Working with you for this cause would mean a lot to me. I would not ask anything of you that I feel you could not accomplish with me. Please support me in finding the cure.

I am dedicating this event to three people who are special to me:

My Father: Lucius Williams

Friend & Collegue: Michael Penn

Friend & Neighbor: Sharif Frink

My dad and mom circa 1960. He passed away from leukemia in 1975.

Michael: Currently treating lymphoma & loving life each day.

Sharif & Dania: Sharif is managing his lymphoma while working hard and enjoying the Bay Area with Dania, family, and friends. (i love this picture)

Please make a donation in support of my efforts with Team In Training and help advance the research for cures.

Thank you in advance for your contribution.
