Racing to Save Lives!
Aug 23, 2010 by Nancy Vides

Thank you for visiting my site!


I'm training to participate in my first half marathon! I plan to successfully complete the Disneyland Half Marathon in September. But I am going to need some help.

As a member of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's (LLS) Team In Training, I will achieve my goal. They will not only help me achieve my personal goal, but also give meaning to the race!


RACING FOR A GREAT CAUSE!


All of us on Team In Training are raising funds to help stop leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin lymphoma and myeloma from taking more lives. I am completing this event in honor of all individuals who are battling blood cancers. These people are the real heroes on our team, and we need your support to cross the ultimate finish line - a cure!


Please make a donation to support my participation in Team In Training and help advance LLS's mission. Remember, all donations are tax deductible!

(Federal Tax ID: 13-5644916)


Be sure to check back frequently to see my progress. Thanks for your support!



RACE UPDATE:

I can't believe it's only 2 more weeks until Race Day. But thanks to the training I have received from Team in Training, I am now able to run up to 12 miles...that's the farthest distance I have ever ran! I am confident and ready to cross the finish line.


Any suggestions on how to go across the finish line?


But I have gained so much more than just becoming an endurance athlete. I have learned about the terrible affects of this disease and how so many families' lives have changed because of it. Now, more than ever I am committed so no more families have to suffer from losing a loved one.


I am proud to be a part of this team and encourage everyone to keep the hope to find a cure!
