Rachel Yonda - Fundraising Page
Mar 16, 2012

Hello, and thank you for visiting my fundraising page!

My name is Rachel Yonda and I'm honored to be participating in the Rock'n'Roll Marathon, taking place in San Diego this June, as a member of The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Team In Training.


UPDATE! March 16th, 2012

I've been having a great time training with the team, meeting some true survivors and hearing some amazingly inspiring stories from my teammates. Over the past month, I've tallied up more than 40 miles of running via the Run Keeper app (and there are even some runs that I forgot to track!). If your curious to see what the actual training schedule is like, please visit my page!


  • I recently registered as a marrow donor with (everyone should!)
  • Training has been going so well that I've decided to go for the full marathon instead of the half....EEK!


Please make a donation in support of my efforts with Team In Training and help advance the research for cures.
