Racing to Save Lives
Greetings! That's right -- I've been working on my run cycle...and this time I need your support !
I am training to participate in an endurance event as a member of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Team In Training. I've made a commitment to raise $2100 for the L&L Society and finish a Half Marathon. Please consider making a donation. You will be helping people heal, and any size contribution is greatly appreciated.
My honorees include :
~ Our local friend Adrienne Boardmann. Her ongoing enthusiasm energizes the entire Santa Barbara Team in Training.
~ My stepfather Bob Asburry, who is currently living with multiple forms of cancer including leukemia and lymphoma. His strong will and positive attitude towards life has always put him high on my list of heroes.
~ A very close friend (and honorary adopted brother), Matt Rhodes, who has successfully fought and beat an advanced case of Hodgkin's lymphoma and is cancer free. His beautiful re-emergence into life is a true inspiration. Visit his site at www.motivatedpixels.com/heroes
~ A genuine fun-loving lady, Janet Grower, whose life was cut short by cancer. She was a petite, pretty woman, with a giant presence. Her and her husband, John lured me to Santa Barbara in 1996. Lucky me! I find Janet's memory in the smallest things, such as a beeswax candle or a needle and thread. She is missed by many friends and loved ones.
~ My teacher/guide and brave spirit, Norma Schell, who has beat the odds against Multiple Sclerosis. She reminds us all that our bodies know how to be healed, in spite of the many great challenges that modern science has yet to conquer. Visit her site and find her book at www.normaschell.com
All these people inspire me, as do my teammates and many other loved ones! Join us in this cause!
All of us on Team In Training are raising funds to help stop leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin lymphoma and myeloma from taking more lives. I'm completing a half marathon in honor of all individuals who are battling blood cancers. These people are the real heroes on our team, and we need your support to cross the ultimate finish line - a cure!
Please make a donation to support my participation in Team In Training and help advance the Society's mission. DONATION DEADLINE IS EXTENDED THROUGH JUNE 15th!!
