Make Someday Today!

Thank you for visiting my fundraising page! I am soooooo close to meeting my $20,000 fundraising goal. Please consider making a tax deductible donation to LLS and help find a cure for blood cancers!

This is me and my Honored Hero, Angela Romanowski Gilbert. She has been battling Leukemia for nearly 2 years and is currently recovering from a bone marrow transplant. She has been a huge motivation in my training and fundraising! 


Fundraising and Training Success!

Here are some pictures from some of my fundraising events and some of my training for the Boston Marathon. I feel blessed to have this opportunity to raise funds for such an important cause while following my dream of running in the Boston Marathon on April 17, 2017. 

My sisters and I at the SJHS alumni basketball fundraiser

Family at my bowling fundraiser in St. Johns, MI.

Tanna, Me, and Rondi. All three of us can't wait to head to BOSTON!!!! Rondi and I are running and Tanna will be cheering us on!

I've been lucky to have my son, Finn, along with me for some of my training runs :)

Winter training isn't always easy, but it's always worth it!

I am beyond honored to be running the Boston Marathon on April 17th as a member of Team in Training!! By participating as a member of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) TNT, I am raising funds to help find cures and ensure access to treatments for blood cancer patients.

Your donation will help fund treatments that save lives every day; like immunotherapies that use a person’s own immune system to kill cancer. You may not know it, but every single donation helps save a life with breakthrough therapies such as these.

Patients need these cures and they need your support.

Please make a donation in support of my efforts with Team In Training and help get us all closer to a world without blood cancers.

Thank you!
