January 2015, I will attempt to run four races in four days at Walt Disney World:

Thursday: 5K

Friday 10K

Saturday: Half marathon

Sunday: Marathon


It's called the Dopey Challenge, and I feel the name is fitting. I am taking on this challenge to help raise money for cancer research and in memory of my friends who lost their fight with this disease. 


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 immnuotherapies 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!
