Champaign Flying Pigs' Team In Training Page
Racing to Save Lives
Welcome to our Team In Training home page.
We are training to participate in Cincinnati's Flying Pig Marathon as part of the 4-person Police Relay Challenge as members 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. We are completing this event in memory of Robert Schaefer, Jason and Jennifer's uncle, who lost his battle with leukemia in July 2005, as well as honoring 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 our participation in Team In Training and help advance the Society's mission.
We hope you'll visit our web site often. Be sure to check back frequently to see our progress. Thanks for your support!
Jennifer Thomas, Brandon Thomas, Jason Jones, and Shannon Bridges
