Dear Friends,
I have undertaken to continue my personal mission to help find cures and more effective treatments for blood cancers. To help accomplish that mission, I am participating in my fifth Philadelphia Half Marathon on Sunday morning, November 17, 2018, as a member of The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Team in Training (TNT). With my participation in the 2014 Philly Marathon and other events, this will be my 14th Team in Training event.

The fall season is underway and my teammates and I are running, walking, swimming and biking our way to cures for leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma, and to improve the quality of life of patients and their families. LLS exists to find cures and ensure access to treatments for blood cancer patients.

Last fall I reached my goal of raising $55,000 in five years.  Many of you support me race after race and so I am calling on you again as I run for awareness and a cure for blood cancers. I have run events alone and with my sons Matt and Mike, but have never really run alone as I have my teammates and the memory of my friends Steve Frederick, who died from non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma in July 2013 and Ray Mahaffey who passed from chronic myelomonocytic leukemia on January 31, 2018. 

On the fifth anniversary of Steve’s death, I can think of no better way to honor Steve, Ray and countless others who have lost the battle. The outpouring of support over the last five years has been both amazing and humbling, but not surprising given the hearts of the people who commit their support and give generously from their hearts.  I am hoping that many of you will support me again this time. 

Lifetime fundraising for LLS now stands at $57,350 and my goal is to raise another $2,650 to break the $60,000 mark before this race.  If you feel as I do, please make a donation in support of my efforts with TNT and help advance the research for cures.  The most effective way to make a donation using a credit card is online at my personal fundraising websites. You can make a donation online at:

If you prefer, you can send a check made payable to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and send to me at my home address below.  The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society will acknowledge donations.  The deadline for gifts is November 10, 2018.

I am grateful for anything you might be able to do and remain humbled by the outpouring of support for my efforts.

Thanks so much,

Ronald A. Frick
