Racing to Help Save Lives
Welcome to my Team In Training home page!
I'm training to
run a marathon
as a member of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's (LLS) Team In Training. The
purpose is to raise funds to help stop blood cancers from taking more lives.
My personal goal is to fundraise $5,000.00 in honor of those who died of blood

fighting need your support, which will help us cross the ultimate finish line -
My first fundraising milestone is $2,000 by October 21. Please
donation of any amount to support my participation in Team In Training and
help advance our mission to fight blood cancers. Every dollar counts! Donating
online is quick and secure, and all donations are 100% tax deductible.

free materials for those who suffer blood cancers, and promotes research in this
area of medicine.

Wish me luck!
donate. The names of all the donors will be written on my t-shirt as I train
and run this marathon. We'll race together to save lives!
I'll update this page with my training progress as I prepare for race day:
January 19 at the P.F. Chang marathon in Arizona. Please visit often and tell
your friends about our Race for Cures!
Thanks so much for your support.
With warm regards,
