Running for a Cure

My Marathon-versary
Dec 31, 2012 by Gates Matthew Stoner

In just under 3 weeks, I'll be lacing up for my fifth marathon in the last 365 days.

In January of 2012, I had never run a marathon and only the previous August committed to getting off the couch. What a difference a year makes.

I'm committed more than just improving my health, but to improving the lives of others who are battling blood cancers (or have yet to be diagnosed). The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society are funding critical research towards a cure for blood cancers and supporting families in treatment. Your donation of any amount will really help the cause.

As 2013 begins, I ask that you considering supporting this important charity.

All my best in the new year,

Running for a cure
Aug 10, 2012 by Gates Matthew Stoner

This January I will celebrate the anniversary of my first marathon by running the PF Chang's Marathon again in Phoenix. I'm honored to be running with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

Blood cancers impact so many families and lives that I'm dedicated to doing all I can to help critical research for cures and to aid families in treatment. Please join Team Matt with a donation to LLS. No amount is too small to make a difference.

If you have a family member battling cancer that you would like me to run in their honor, just let me know. I can also run in memory of a loved one that lost their battle.

Teams are made up of individuals. Without them, there is no team.

Welcome to my Team In Training home page.

I have a mission-to help find cures and more effective treatments for blood cancers. To accomplish that mission, I’m participating in a sports endurance event as a member of The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Team In Training. Like the other members of TNT, 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.

Please make a donation in support of my efforts with Team In Training and help advance the research for cures.
