Welcome to my Team In Training fund raising page!
Last year, my co-workers at FIS collected over $152,000 in support of the mission to help find cures and more effective treatments for blood cancers. I have decided to join them in this worthy cause.
I am running the half marathon (13.1 miles) at the Walt Disney World Marathon events in January 2014 as a member of The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Team In Training at FIS.
Like the other members of TNT - Team FIS, I will be raising funds to help find cures and better treatments for leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma. I’m improving the quality of my life by participating and with your support, I can help improve the quality of life for patients and their families as well.
My goal is to raise $3,000 -- so I need your help! Over 75% of the funds you donate will be funneled directly into research and patient education, family support groups, and survivor/patient matching programs. Your tax deductible donation will support research to find a cause and cure for blood cancers.
Cancer has touched the lives of so many, my family included and likely yours too. Please make a donation in support of my efforts with Team In Training and help advance the research for cures. For donations over $100, I will write your name on my race jersey.
Thank you for your support and think of me as I put in those training miles!
