Thanks!!! -- And Now, the Push to $5,900!!!
Apr 28, 2015 by Josh Kornbluth

Thank you so much, everyone, for your shockingly generous donations so far, which have already taken me past my minimum fundraising goal!!


Now I'm shooting even higher -- trying to reach $5,900, which might (besides being an amazingly wonderful amount of money to fight blood cancers) entitle me to a discount on my air travel to and from this epic ride!!


As ever, please don't hesitate to contact me at  And check on my weekly training progress on my blog:


Your Sore-Legged Pal,


Mar 10, 2015



Thanks so much for checking out my Team In Training (TNT) fundraising page!


This will be the fourth year in a row that I've trained with TNT for an endurance bike ride.  In each of the past three years, the training culminated in a century (100-mile) ride.  And despite occasional complaints from my butt and other assorted body parts, each ride was a wonderful experience: a day spent on my bike in beautiful surroundings, surrounded by thousands of my fellow cyclist-fundraisers, and supported (and inspired) by kind, generous people like you.  In those three years, I was able to raise a total of $14,328.22 towards fighting blood cancers and supporting cancer patients and their loved ones.


This year -- because of peer pressure from my teammates, because I want to, and because I'm crazy -- I will be biking not 100 miles but 188!  This summer's event, nicknamed RSVP 2, will have us riding from Seattle, Wash., to Vancouver, B.C.  (The acronym stands for "Ride from Seattle to Vancouver & Party 2," I think.)  The good news is that we'll have two days to do it, instead of the usual one.  The more challenging news is that I'm going to have to raise more money than usual: a total of $3,900.  Plus, I've just learned that if I raise another $2,000 on top of that -- for a total of $5,900 -- TNT will give me up to a $500 flight reimbursement.


Any donation you could make would be ecstatically appreciated!!  I can't tell you how thrilling it is each time I receive a notification of a new contribution!


The event itself is on Aug. 15 & 16, so I need to raise at least the $3,900 before then.  In the meantime, I will be reporting on my weekly training rides via my blog: -- and I'd love to hear from you in the Comments section!


If you have any questions for me, please don't hesitate to send me an email at


Thank you so very much for considering making a contribution towards my 2015 TNT ride!!


Take care,

    "I did a marathon and a couple of triathlons with Team in Training. A great experience! I am so glad you're doing this. I lost 2 dear friends to blood cancers, and my aunt survived hers. You had me at Love and Taxes. I live in Seattle so can never go to your events. "
