Racing For A Cure
Oct 02, 2013

I'm training to run the Nike Women’s Marathon on October 20, 2013, all 26.2 miles, as a member of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's (LLS) Team In Training (TNT). 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 consider making a generous donation to support my participation in Team In Training and help advance LLS's mission. You can make a secure, online donation here, or contact me to find out how you can mail a check. I've run five marathons, two half marathons, ridden two century rides, and completed two triathlon with TNT. Back when I started this adventure with TNT in 2005 I never imagined it would become such an important part of my life, but here I am nine years over $35,000 dollars later. Go Team!
