From Marathon #19 to 19 Thousand Feet!
May 11, 2018

 

Last month, I ran the Paris Marathon which was my 19th marathon overall.  #20 will happen at an undetermined location near the end of the year.  In the meantime, I'll be getting adventurous in a completely different way - even farther away than Paris!  This August as part of Team in Training's Climb 2 Cure program, I'll be climbing Mount Kilimanjaro - the highest peak in Africa!  The summit is 19,341 feet above sea level - a thousand feet for every marathon I've done!

 

As I've done for numerous marathons, I'll be fundraising with Team in Training for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.  TNT has been a major part of my life over the past ten years.  As many of you know, my dad passed away in June 2008 after battling Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma, and three months later my three-year-old niece Kelly was diagnosed with leukemia.  The most important part of the story is that Kelly became a teenager in March, and she remains cancer-free more than seven years after her treatment ended.

 

 

 

Please join me in honoring Kelly, my dad, and far too many others who have endured the fight against blood cancers with a donation to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.  Any donation - no matter what size - is greatly appreciated and gets us closer to a cure.  Thanks so much for your support - GO TEAM!

 

With love and gratitude,

Jack

WELCOME TO MY TEAM IN TRAINING (TNT) HOME PAGE!

 

It takes more than one person to make up a team and that’s why I’m asking you to donate to my TNT fundraising page for TNT!

 

By participating as a member of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) TNT, I am raising funds to help find cures and ensure access to treatments for blood cancer patients.

 

Your donation will help fund treatments that save lives every day; like immunotherapies that use a person’s own immune system to kill cancer. You may not know it, but every single donation helps save a life with breakthrough therapies such as these.

 

Patients need these cures and they need your support.

 

Please make a donation in support of my efforts with Team In Training and help get us all closer to a world without blood cancers.

 

Thank you!

    "You do great things for many people Jack! Can't give a lot, but just want to show support AND hope you'll keep Evie in mind as you hike. She's a 16 year-old girl here in Burbank who was just diagnosed with leukemia and will likely be hospitalized for much of the next 4 months. With a child the same age, I just can't fathom the anguish. Thanks for doing what you can to raise funds and awareness."
