Racing to Save Lives

Welcome to my Team In Training home page.

As I continue to age and mature I have realized that there are times in everyone’s lives that stand out and have special meaning. I believe the next six months of my life will have a lasting impact on who I am and who I become.

I have decided to start giving back by participating in the BMO Vancouver Marathon on May 1st, 2011. Over the next six months I will be training as a member of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's (LLS) Team In Training. All of us on Team In Training are raising funds to help stop leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin lymphoma and myeloma from taking more lives.

I’m sure that many of you are laughing right now trying to picture me, of all people, completing an entire marathon. And you know what, I’m right here laughing with you. I’ll admit, I’m the last person in the world that would ever do something like this but I think that is what makes this even more special.

I ask your help in giving back. THINK BIG and give as generously as you can - whether it's $5, $50 or $500, you will make a big difference in someone's life. My goal is to raise $2900 dollars over the next five months while freezing my butt off running around Central Park. If every one of my Facebook friends donated $20 then we would have raised over $3500 just like that! $20 is nothing. It’s a cab ride home. A night out for dinner. A couple tickets to the movies. And it’s far less than filing your car with gas! Plus, all donations are tax deductible! The money raised will be used for research, education, and patient services.

If you haven’t noticed, I’ve started posting some of my runs on Facebook so you can see my progress. I’ll continue to update everyone about how my training and fundraising is going as I prepare for the longest run of my life...

Thank you everyone for taking the time to read all of this and I hope you will help me reach my goal and contribute to this wonderful organization!
