Racing to Save Lives


Welcome to my Team In Training home page. I maintain a detailed blog about my marathon training progress. Pl. follow me at http://saismarathon.blogspot.com/


I'm training to participate in the Seattle Marathon in June 2009 as a member of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's (LLS) Team In Training (TNT). All of us on TNT are raising funds to help stop leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin lymphoma and myeloma from taking more lives.


Please make a donation to support my participation in TNT and help advance LLS's mission.


Thanks in advance for your generous contribution. It is 100% tax deductible. Also, most of your employers would match your contribution. So, even if you donate $25, with employer contribution, it comes to a very generous amount. No amount is small. What do they say about little drops and ocean?


You can check if your employer matches your donation for The Leukemia & Lymphoma society at http://www.matchinggifts.com/lls/


If your employer has a matching contribution, pl. mention in the notes section (or something similar in your employer page) that the sponsor for this fund raising is "Saikrishnan Gopalakrishnan, Team in Training, Runner, Seattle Marathon June 2009".


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!


If you have a connection with some one who is bravely fighting cancer, pl. drop me a note. I will be add the name to an honoree bracelet I will be wearing during the event.

    "Bob Mixon is a TNT alumni, cancer survivor, and avid cyclist. He has ridden over 100,000 miles in his lifetime and is an inspiration, embodying the spirit of the Team in Training cycle culture. Bob's enthusiasm and above all, unquenchable thirst for life, have left a lasting impression on all who have ridden with him. While Bob can't be with us for the 2016 Tahoe Century, the OSWIM TNT cycling team is honoring him with a lifetime achievement award and commemorative cycling patch. All proceeds go toward Team in Training for the purpose of cancer research. On behalf of Bob and the entire OSWIM cycling team, we thank you for your support."
