PENS HOME OPENER TICKET RAFFLE
Aug 23, 2010 by John Pavshak

PITTSBURGH PENGUIN RAFFLE!!!!


Amy and I will be raffling off a pair of tickets to the Pens home-opener to benefit LLS! The game is on Thursday, October 7th in the new Consol Energy Center against Philly. A $5 donation will get you a raffle ticket with two chances on it. We have 500 tickets-- so someone will be a winner! The drawing will be based on the evening drawing of the PA Daily Lottery on Saturday September 25th.


How we can do this-- donate on this page, Amy's page, or our team page. Leave a note in the comments that you'd like raffle tickets-- and how many you'd like. I'll email you your ticket numbers and mail them out to you asap.


Or, see us in person!


Thank you in advance for your support of the Leukemia- Lymphoma Society and good luck!!

Racing to Save Lives


Welcome to my Team In Training home page.


Last month I ran my first marathon, along with my Amazing wife Amy. She had joined team in training a few months prior to the Pittsburgh marathon. It was inspiring to see the group work tirelessly to raise money for a good cause. The team pushed each other to reach their fitness goals while often remembering the reason that brought them all together. After seeing people give so much of themselves to help people that they don't know and will probably never meet I realized that I would Love to become a part of this group. Hearing how the team has made a difference in cancer patients lives has also inspired me to volunteer to be a bone marrow donor. I am hoping to help these people of all ages in their fight against Cancer.


I'm training to participate in the Marine Corps Marathon as a member of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's (LLS) Team In Training. 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 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!


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. Thanks for your support!
