Help me raise $3000 for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society!
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's mission: Cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's lymphoma and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families. The Society has dedicated itself to being one of the top-rated voluntary health agencies in terms of dollars that directly fund our mission. The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society is the world's largest voluntary health organization dedicated to funding blood cancer research, education and patient services. Since its founding in 1949, the Society has invested more than $483 million for research specifically targeting blood cancers.
I am training to participate in the 2007 Boston Marathon as a member of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Team In Training. I have made a commitment to raise at least $3000 to help stop leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's lymphoma and myeloma from taking more lives. I'm completing this event in honor of all individuals who are battling blood cancers. Specifically, I am running in memory of Lawrence Meyer. These people are the real heroes on our team, and we need your support to cross the ultimate finish line - a cure!
Running with Team in Training in 2006 was one of the greatest honors I have experienced. Although I finished last years Boston Marathon in A LOT of pain, I felt grateful for the experience to run for such an amazing cause. It was fabulous to run (and at times hobble) the marathon course with people cheering me on as a member of Team in Training. Running a marathon is not easy for me and the support of everyone from those able to donate, send care packages, suggest running music, and spectate make it a real team accomplishment. Thank you so much to those who donated last year. I raised over $3000 and hope to do the same this year! Words of encouragement are ALWAYS appreciated.
P.S. If anyone knows where to find some purple spandex that go to just above the knees I would appreciate it. Trying to put together the perfect outfit for this year's marathon!!
