Teams are made up of individuals. Without them, there is no team.


Call me crazy, but on July 19, 2015 - just days after my 30th birthday! - I will swim 1500 meters in the infamous Hudson River, bike 40k along the West Side of Manhattan, and run 10k before ending in the middle of Central Park.


(Now call me crazier, because this is the SECOND time I am going to do this!!)


Why you ask? I am on a mission to help find cures and more effective treatments for blood cancers. To accomplish that mission, I’m participating in the NYC Triathlon as a member of The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Team In Training (TNT). Like the other members of TNT, I will be raising funds to help find cures and better treatments for leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma. I’m improving the quality of my life by participating in the NYC Triathlon and with your support, I can also help improve the quality of life for patients and their families.


Like last year, I am also doing this in memory of my grandma, Jane Sidlik, who battled with lymphoma. She always told me that, while I was too stubborn for my own good at times, once I put my mind to something there was no stopping me.  This year, my goal is to CRUSH  last year in both my triathlon time and fundraising.


Last year I raised over $6,500 for LLS, and my team raised over 1 million dollars!  Help me beat that.

Did you know that:

  • $50 registers 1 person to be a bone marrow donor
  • $100 pays for the cost of 4 patients chemo drug prescription copays
  • $500 provides patient aid to individuals with blood cancer for a year
  • $ 1,000 provides one-on-one meetings with health care specialists to design and discuss their treatment plans


Please make a donation in support of my efforts with Team In Training and help advance the research for cures. (I'll also accept good thoughts, advice, well wishes, and your cheers as I cross the finish line in Central Park!)

Donate in memory or in honor of someone and his or her name will be written on my arm on July 19, 2015 guiding me through as I take on 32 miles of NYC!  Here is a picture of last year.  Help me to fill up that arm!



Make sure you follow my blog as I document my adventure!
