Last PUSH and a PLEA!!
Dec 30, 2011 by Heather Gannoe

Alright here is the deal, kids...


I have 14 days to raise the last $910.80 for the commitment I made to raise $3800 for Team in Training.


I appreciate, from the bottom of my heart, ALL of the amazing support you have all given me throughout this journey, but I still have a big last leap to go.


So here's what I'm going to do:


For every $25 donated in the next 48 hours, I will run 1 mile New Years Day.


So if I raise the rest of the minimum of $910.80, that's 36.4 miles. Snow, sleet, freezing temperatures, hangover, whatever New Years Day in New Hampshire brings me, I will run through it.


Because yes, (I am THAT crazy & ) I HATE cancer THAT much.


So, how far do you want to see me go? Spread the word, tell your friends. I'll check back in Sunday afternoon with an official Garmin picture.


The funds raised go towards helping find cures and better treatments for leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma. With your support, I can help improve the quality of life for patients and their families as well.


Thank you for your constant support & love!


edit:

***11:00 am update: we are up to 8 miles...

In the past 5 years since I've been running, I've heard so many amazing things about the efforts of Team in Training for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. I've seen first hand the enthusiasm of the athletes and their team at races. I've heard encouraging stories from friends who have participated with TNT in the past. And I've seen incredibly touching stories of how participants lives are changed, not just from the running, or the fundraising, but from stepping out of their comfort zone to help make a difference in something even bigger than themselves. Further, I know WAY TOO many people who's lives have been personally touched by cancer.


I've always thought about joining Team in Training. When I learned this year that they would be heading to Disneyland for the Inagural Tinkerbell half marathon, I knew this was my sign that it was time to join the Team.



I am now on a mission-to help find cures and more effective treatments for blood cancers. To accomplish that mission, I am participating in the Disney Tinkerbell Half Marathon as a member of The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Team In Training. 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 and with your support, I can help improve the quality of life for patients and their families as well.


Please make a donation in support of my efforts with Team In Training and help advance the research for cures. With your help, we can make sure that future leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma survivors can live to celebrate their future birthdays :)
