13.1 - DONE!
Nov 05, 2011 by Carol Martzinek

If you reach this page and donations are no longer being accepted, you can make a donation on my New Jersey Marathon page:

It was hot, it was disgustingly humid, and overall, it was an interesting race. But, I finished and now my 13.1 is over and done!

Thanks to the wonders of modern technology, you can see me as I walk across the finish line of the Hamptons Half Marathon! You can also see some good and bad pictures of me taken during the race here:

I'm still raising funds for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, and will be continuing to accept donations via this page through November 30th. If you would like to help blood cancer research and patient support programs, you can do so by making a donation to my fundraising campaign.

Each donation helps accelerate finding a cure for leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma. Nearly 958,000 Americans are battling these blood cancers. I am hoping that my participation in Team In Training will help bring them hope and support.

On behalf of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, thank you very much for your support. I greatly appreciate your generosity.

Run, Carol, RUN!!!
Jun 26, 2011

You've seen me "Crawl, Carol, CRAWL!!!" Now watch me "Run, Carol, RUN!!!"

I'm RUN-walking 13.1 miles to save lives.

Last year:I DID IT!!! I walked all 26.2 miles in the Walt Disney World Marathon on 1/10/2010, and then another 23.5 miles in this year's Walt Disney World Marathon on 1/09/2011.

YOU DID IT!!! You all helped me cross that finish line! Your generous donations and moral support were what kept me going. THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH!!!

This year: Not only am I doing it again, I'm also a Team in Training Mentor! I've signed up to RUN-walk the Hamptons Half Marathon on 9/24/2011 to support The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society's Team In Training. I'm committing to RUN-walking13.1 miles in this event.

In doing so, my goal is to raise at least $1,950 for LLS to help bring hope and at least some ease of mind to people facing blood cancers like leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's lymphoma and myeloma.

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society is projected to fall short of their national budget this year. So what does that mean? That means that for some, the LLS co-pay fund that once helped cover the costs of medications and doctor visits is now depleted. That also means that research funding is being scaled back, slowing advancements in treatments and towards a cure.

Your donation can make such a huge difference. It funds research, assists patients with small reimbursements for treatment expenses, and most important- it brings hope to so many. Please donate what you can. I know the economy is tough on us all, but please think as big and dig as deep as you're able. Every dollar counts.

If you're not able to donate, there are loads of other ways you can help me make this happen. I've listed them below, and they're equally important and greatly appreciated.

To donate by check, you can make checks payable to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, and mail them to me at the following address:
