Swim/Run/Bike to Save Lives
Welcome to my Team In Training home page.

I am training for the Triathlon in Pacific Grove as a member of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Team In Training. 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 this event in honor of all individuals who are battling blood cancers. A list of some of these people who have directly touched me or others who are supporting my training are below. These 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: to find a cure for blood cancers and improve the lives of patients and their families.
If you have any questions about my training, or the cause, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks for your support! -- Melissa
