Mar 20, 2019

I am honored to be a part of something bigger than myself. Over the past 7 years I have had a blast being part of Team in Training (TNT), the largest fundraising arm of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS) and a team that completes endurance events to raise awareness of the devastation of blood cancers and fund research for a cure. In addition to their exhaustive research, LLS also supports patients of blood cancers and their families and has raised over $1.2B. The results have been amazing! Results like discovering treatments that save lives every day; For example, immnuotherapies that use a person’s own immune system to kill cancer. Although funded by LLS, amazingly, these treatments are also used to treat many other forms of cancer, not only blood cancers. You may not know it, but every single donation helps save a life with breakthrough therapies such as these.

Since 2011, I have competed in multiple endurance events and raised over $30,000 for LLS. Now, I am stepping out of my comfort zone and pledging to raise over $100,000 for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS), 100% of which goes to support the lifesaving efforts of the LLS. Why you ask? First, to honor of my Mom, Alida, who is a survivor of both Leukemia (remission for over 8 years) and Lymphoma (tumor free for almost 3 years). She's put up a gutsy fight, but too many others have lost their courageous battles! Second...what is the best known and most grueling Triathlon there is? It’s the Ironman World Championships in Kona of course! I would like to represent Team in Training at this event in October 2019. While I could never go to Kona by qualifying for the event, like the pros, but it has always been a dream of mine. So, I would love to kill two birds with one stone Second...I have been selected to represent the LLS in the Ironman World Championships in Kona in October 2019.  So, I would love to honor my mom and help the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society by raising at least $100,000 to find a cure for cancer. I NEED YOUR HELP!!

That’s why I’m asking you to donate to my TNT fundraising page (just click the DONATE NOW button above)! 100% of every donation goes to the LLS and is totally tax deductible. I need your help because, well...you see that fundraising goal and cancer research, helping those with cancer and their families, and finding cures takes a tremendous amount of money.

As I stated, I am raising funds in honor of my Mom, Please help me by donating whatever you can to ensure access to treatments for Mom and other blood cancer patients like her. No amount is too small...or too large ;-). This is my Mom. Doesn't she look great?

In addition to my Mom, I am also running in memory/honor of my honored heroes:

Cynthia Sparkes, Kim Glover, David DeRuosi, Madison Soultz, Coach Kathy Lemay, Catherine Cowart, Honored Hero Ruby, Honored Hero Jill Powers, Honored Hero Andrew Johnston, Honored Hero Ailynn, Honored Hero James, Honored Hero Ellanor, Honored Hero Jazeri Comstock, Honored Hero Kelly (RIP Kelly Strong), Shawn Hammond, Alex Strickland, Mae O'Reilly, Alice Little Caldwell, Rudi Stryker, Denise Crider, John Kincaid, Fran Gerling and so many other friends and Teammates who have fought cancer.

(Please let me know if I can add a name of your loved ones)

 Help me to kick cancer's A$$. Patients need these cures and they need your support.  I would be honored to have you with me on this journey! 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.

 

Words cannot express how much your donation means to me! Thank you so much for your support!
