MARATHON FOR CAROLINE
Welcome to my Team In Training home page and thanks for taking the time to visit.
In the fall of 2008 Caroline Gallagher Cranston, a Duquesne University Lacrosse Alumna, was diagnosed with Leukemia. Since then she has been fighting the difficult battle against this terrible disease. In her honor I am pledging to raise $5,000 and to run in the Disney World Marathon January 10, 2010. I need your support!
I'm training to participate this event for Caroline 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 Caroline and 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 as I will be updating my fund raising progress, my training progress and I will be sharing personal stories about the impact Caroline has had on the Duquesne University Women's Lacrosse Program. Thank you for your support! Let's work together to find a cure!
Women's Lacrosse Coach
In Caroline's honor the women's lacrosse team competed at the Lacrosse for Leukemia Tournament in Bel Air, MD October 17th. While the event was a bit soggy it was a great day of lacrosse for the Dukes. The team wore shirts with Caroline's name and number (see pic) and Mr Gallagher was able to attend supporting the Dukes. It was a great weekend.
I MADE IT! Both on the course and in the fundraising department thanks to the tremendous support I received from all of you. The couse was cold (lowest temps in florida in years) but beautiful. 27,000 runners and a great group of supporters. Thanks again to everyone that supported my efforts. I could not have done this without you.
