Welcome ALL to my Team in Training home page.
Here I go AGAIN!!! I said before I even crossed the finish line at my first marathon I WOULD be doing this again. So today, May 19th, kick off training began. I am training to participate in the Free Press marathon in Detroit on October 21st as a member of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Team In Training. I am also excited to share that I have "recruited" 5 friends of mine to join me in this mission. All of us on Team In Training are raising funds to help stop leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin lymphoma and myeloma from taking more lives. I am doing this marathon in memory of my Gram, Sylvia and my Dad, Jud. Who curagiously finished their race here on this earth fighting Leukemia and Lymphoma. My inspiration renewed itself when I met a family at Taylor's dance class whose son Adam was diagnosed at just 8 months of age with Leukemia- at 3 years old he is my Hero- my Honored Hero for this marathon.
Please join me in this great challenge by supporting my goal of raising $1500 by contributing to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society on my behalf. I need your support to cross the ultimate finish line - a cure! I hope you'll visit my web site often. Be sure to check back frequently to see my progress. Thanks for your support!
