Racing to Save Lives


Bald is Beautiful! (9/26/09 Update)

We had a great response at the Farmers Market - KSBW had a reporter there and I made the top story on the 11 o'clock news! http://www.ksbw.com/video/21097701/index.html Fundraising cut-off is Thursday, October 1, and it is looking a bit scary still, so I am again asking folks to "Gimme 5!" If everyone on my email list gets 5 friends to donate $5 online, I believe I will make it :) So let's GO TEAM!


Laurie & I are walking 12 miles at our "Nike Dress Rehearsal" today - we simulate race day so we're more mentally prepared for the actual event. Should be a fun day - here's hoping there aren't too many hills!


UPDATE -9/23/09

Today's the day - I'm losing my hair for the Cause tonight! If you're in the Monterey/Salinas area, please stop by the Toro Park Farmers' Market (Toro Park Elementary School, 22500 Portola Drive, Salinas) between 4:30 and 7:30 p.m. Family, friends and teammates will be sharing information about Team in Training, The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, and "capping off" the night with somebody taking the clippers to my skull and balding me. Just call me "Sinead."


UPDATE - 9/16/09


Had a little setback due to an injury but am now back on track, so to speak! Teammate Laurie & I are having a yard sale on Sunday 9/20/09 at my place in Monterey - stop by to shop or just hang out. We'll be selling raffle tickets for our Family Gift Baskets, too. And don't forget about me going bald for the cause: the grand event will be at the Farmers Market at Toro Park School on Wed. 9/23/09.


UPDATE - 9/02/09

I'M GOING BALD FOR THE CAUSE ON SEPTEMBER 23, 2009!! That's right, I'm getting my head completely shaved - I'm really showing my commitment to LLS, and now it's crunch time as the fundraising deadline approaches!


THE BACKGROUND:

Welcome to my Team In Training home page! That's me, arms raised high, in the photo above as I crossed the finish line after completing my 13.1 mile walk around San Francisco in 2007!!


Back in training for this year's Nike event, THIS time I'll be doing the FULL MARATHON, 26.2 MILES, again as a member of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's (LLS) Team In Training. Team in Training raises 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!


Besides our team's heroes, I'm honoring people close to me who have had blood or other cancers, like Lynn Smith, Margaret Lauderdale, Bill Bruckart, John Mash Jr., and in memory of people like Klar Wennerholm and Dennis Ellis.


Please make a donation 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 my blog to follow our progress. Thanks for your support!


GO TEAM!!!
