Team Captains:  Ann Chavez & Anne Hess


Across the US TNT participants are training together as teams to prepare for a sports event that will support cures and access to treatments for blood cancer patients!


Ann & Anne met in September at a fitness retreat  weekend with 1fwtraining: fitness training for those seeking to live a full and fit life after loss.  They are now combining forces to run and fundraise in memory of their beloved and so that no other family has to face blood cancer.  

Join us in honoring JAY KAISER & JARED HESS and help put an end to blood cancers.  Jay and Jared loved being active and seeing people engage in things that they were passionate about.   This race and the ability to raise money for LLS gives us the opportunity to honor their passions and to live a Joyful and Fit life.  Please consider supporting our TNT Team with a  $5.00 donation.



Want to run or walk the Rock N Roll San Diego Half Marathon on the JOY4JAY & JARED Team?  Join us on May 31, 2015.  All are welcome.  Please contact us at annchavez1@gmail.com to join the team.   It is a great way to have fun, get in shape, and honor two amazing lives.



We are raising funds to continue The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's funding of the breakthrough development of therapies that have already saved and continues to save thousands of lives. As a team, we are that much stronger, but still need the might of your support.


Please donate now to this TNT team and help us all get closer to a world without blood cancers!

Please donate to the TEAM Link - it helps both of us reach our fundraising goals!

Thank you!

Ann & Anne
