It's Almost Time! Break out the Bandaids
Sep 12, 2016 by Debby Vose

Hello Again Friends,

The date for the Leavnenworth Team in Training half marathon is quickly approaching. This is the thing I emailed you about earlier where I plan to walk/jog/crawl for 13.1 miles to raise money to help find a cure for Childhood Luekemia.  The date is October 1, 2016.

Here's my update:

1.  I still hate running, but am still going to limp my way through all 13.1 miles just to prove a point.  And that point is that CANCER SUCKS!  I will not become a runner from this experience, but I will become more involved in finding a cure for an evil, evil disease.  You can help!

2.  I have some super cool friends who have already donated to our cause and I thank you all again!  I am not quite to my personal fundraising goal, but I am confident I can make it!

3.  I have some even super cooler friends who decided to sign up, join Team Haley and run the race with me and raise even more money to find a cure for Childhood Luekemia!  You guys know who you are and you are ROCK STARS!

4. I have bought new running shoes.  They are ugly as all running shoes tend to be.  I have gone exactly four miles in them.  I will make it to the end don't you fret.  There will be beer and pretzels. It's Octoberfest!

5. I am playing in a poker tournament on Saturday, 9/17/16,  to raise money for Team Haley. I call it training.  Text or call me if you are interested in joining. There are still seats available.  All the money goes towards our goal!  

6.  The team goal is $100,000 and we are already at $92, 287!  We are almost there!  I can't believe it!

If we reach the full $100,000, we will get to put all the money directly towards LLS's childhood leukemia research portfolio and Haley's name will be linked to the research. This means that when you donate to Team Haley, you are literally helping to CURE childhood leukemia because all the money you donate will go directly towards finding a cure. And that is pretty darn amazing!! Any amount helps us reach our goal! Please support us today...

Thank you all so much!

What's Happening?
Jul 12, 2016



~~I have joined Team Haley and will be raising funds for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) as a participant in their Team In Training program.  I will be running (HA! Just kidding!) I will be jog/walking a half marathon in Leaveworth, WA this October with some good friends.
For those of you who don't know, my good friend's nine year old niece, Haley, was diagnosed in May of last year with High Risk Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. 

Haley is now in the maintenance phase of treatment which consists of oral chemo daily for two years along with chemo at the clinic once monthly for two years. Haley told the TNT last season: “Even though I have this, it’s a lot easier when I know I have people cheering for me and praying for me.”

Haley is super motivated to raise $100,000 to help find a cure for Leukemia so that other kids don't have to go through what she is living through. If she hits the $100k mark LLS will name research grant in her honor. My personal goal is to raise $5K of that total.  Haley is truly an inspiration which is why I choose to get involved.  So, even though the thought of me "running" in any kind of marathon is hilarious, cancer on the other hand, simply is not.  Join me now!

I will send out updates as I get closer to the race to update you on my personal and Team Haley's progress.

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.

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!
