Nov 26, 2013

Friends, Welcome to my Team In Training home page.

Yep! I've signed up once more with the Georgia Chain Gang for the Race Across America, and we are again raising money for the Leukemia & Lymphona Society. We raised a total of $390,000 in our last 3 races. Our goal this time is $200,000 and we've the team and crew to do it.

In 2010 and 2012 I participated as a rider. In 2014 I'm signed up as the co-crew chief, along with Jane Eastham. Our job is get these riders across the country safely and in record time.

Most importantly we have a mission - to help find cures and more effective treatments for blood cancers. Like all the members of our team, I am raising funds to help find cures and better treatments for leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma.

We all participate so that we don't lose more friends like Warren Bruno, our Remembered Hero and 2010 crew chief, who died shortly before our race in 2012. We want to make sure there are more success stories like young Brennan Simkins, our Team Hero in 2009 and 2010, who successfully fought his leukemia into remission with the help of the latest treatment advances.

Thanks for your support!
