Racing to Save Lives
Welcome to my Team in Training fundraising page. I am running the San Diego Rock & Roll Marathon on June 1 in memory of my brother, Charles Wilding-White.
Charles was a talented and charming young man who left us after a ten-month battle with leukemia on January 1,1990. At 31, he had already accomplished a great deal. He was both a skilled musical performer--playing piano, fiddle, guitar and mandolin on the streets, in clubs, in bands, for improv comedy and stage productions--and an imaginative composer for theater. His credits included Shakespeare’s ‘Titus Andronicus,’ Bertolt Brecht’s ‘Edward II’ and ‘The Caucasian Chalk Circle,’ and ‘Diggory’s Rag and Other Tales,’ based upon stories by Annabelle Thomas. His work won him Joseph Jefferson Awards, Chicago’s Tonys, in 1987 and 1988.
Please help me honor his contributions by making one of your own. You may make a secure donation with your credit card directly to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society from the 'Make a Contribution' sidebar to the left. Any amount makes a difference.
Team in Training, the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, patients and researchers, and I thank you for your support.
