Racing to Save Lives
Welcome to my Team In Training home page!!!
Hi, my name is Lorena Winicki, and I am currently training to participate in the Nike Women's Marathon in San Fransisco as a member of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's (LLS) Team In Training. How exciting!
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 a driven individual who plans on completing the marathon in honor of those 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!
Why I Will Run For a Cure
There are many reasons why I chose to raise funds with Team in Training.
First, the fact that the money raised will go to LLS is reason enough. Through the efforts of myself and those donating, we will be able to aid in searching for a cure to dangerous blood cancers. I just can't help but to imagine how grateful I would be, say, if I had a daughter with leukemia, and a cure for her was found through the aspirations of TNT. Eternally grateful, I would be.
Aside from giving hope to those who desperately need it, participating in TNT will help me to inspire the average joe to live a healthier, more active life. I know when I began running, my spirits shot way way up! And plus, who doesn't like feeling a cool breeze in their hair while going for a morning stroll?
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 back frequently to see my progress. It should be interesting, to say the least (haha). Thanks for your support!
