Imagine coasting down a perfect mountain road, the wind at your back, nothing but blue sky and an amazing landscape in front of you.
This doesn't have to be fantasy. By joining The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Team In Training (TNT) cycling program, you'll experience the joy of getting ready for a magnificent, 100-mile century bike ride in some of America's most beautiful destinations.
Since 1988, TNT has trained thousands of people to finish an accredited century ride, like America's Most Beautiful Bike Ride in gorgeous Lake Tahoe, Arizona's El Tour de Tucson and the Honolulu Century Ride.
In return for four to five months of professional coaching, training in a fun and supportive group atmosphere, travel, lodging and fees for the event of their choice, TNT participants raise funds to help the Society's mission: Cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families.
Who are Team In Training participants? They come from all walks of life -- from novice to seasoned athletes -- and want the motivation and expert training to get in the best shape of their lives. Some have been touched personally by cancer and want to do all they can to help cure leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma; others want the athletic experience of a lifetime.
And cheering them along, from the first day of training to the finish line, are "honored teammates" -- local patients whose own battles with blood cancer inspire and motivate TNT participants.
