Kailie’s Krew is Tahoe bound again to raise another $100K to fight blood related cancers! We are riding our bikes 100 miles around Lake Tahoe and raising funds for Team in Training. Fighting cancer is the REAL DEAL! CANCER SUCKS! Chemotherapy is expensive and treatments are hard on bodies, big and small. The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Team in Training raises funds to  provide life-saving research and support to blood cancer patients and their families.

Kailie’s Krew is named after my sweet girl, Kailie. Kailie was a selfless little girl who lived to bring smiles and joy to those around her. Kailie’s Krew represents the idea that many different people (alumni, new teammates & friends – many who end up becoming teammates) can come together and rally around the cause of raising awareness and funds to make a difference in the lives of those impacted by blood related cancers. The REAL DEAL is inspired by Cole and Super Thomas, our honored heroes, fighting cancer like true superheroes!

Kailie was diagnosed with Leukemia in 2000 at the age of 9. After a long, courageous battle, she passed away in August 2004 at the age of 13, but not before she inspired many people to cycle, run, and swim for a cure with Team in Training. These teammates also inspired her as she fought her fight!

Approximately every 3 minutes one person in the United States is diagnosed with a blood cancer.

This is Thomas, or Super Thomas, as he is called because he is fighting Leukemia like a superhero! Super Thomas is 3 years old and was diagnosed in October of 2016 with Leukemia. He is NOT a statistic! He is a little boy with a big brother, a little sister, a mommy, and a daddy!

This is Cole.  Cole was diagnosed with Leukemia about a year and a half ago when he was 7. Cole is also NOT a statistic. Cole has a big sister, two big brothers, a mom, and a dad. Cole likes to cook and likes hockey and video games. He’s a pretty cool kid!

This is Lucy. Lucy was our honored hero last year. Right before Christmas, 2015, she has a bone marrow transplant. This year, she started preschool. She is NOT a statistic. She is a precious little girl who has a big sister, a mommy, and a daddy.  Her daddy is joining us on the team this year to raise money to fight blood cancer!

Approximately every 9 minutes, someone in the US dies from a blood cancer.

We need YOUR help to keep these diagnosis’ and deaths on the decline!  One day, people aren't going to die from blood related cancers.  One day blood related cancers won’t exist and it will be because of people like YOU have donated to causes like this!

Our goal is to raise $100K to fund a research grant in Thomas’ and Cole’s names! Please help us reach that goal! You can donate easily through this page! Any amount all adds up!  Become a part of Kailie’s Krew today and help us as we proclaim...GO TEAM!!

    "Johnelle, You are an inspiration. Like the pedals of a bike, May the Lord lift you up each time you feel pressed down. May His spirit push you up the hills and fill you with zeal as you soar down. His presence is so apparent in the beauty of Tahoe, just as Kailie is a testimony of His gifts. Stay strong. Love, your cousin, Stephanie"
