The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Team In Training

I did it. I signed up for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Team In Training to help raise money to benefit research and patient services for those affected by leukemia, non-Hodgkin lymphoma, Hodgkin lymphoma and myeloma. I am running in honor of my Uncle Al who I lost in January 2006 to leukemia. I want to help in any way I can and put an end to this terrible disease.

Did you know that leukemia is the number one disease-killer of children under 15 and lymphoma is the leading killer of men and women under 35? Did you know that every five minutes someone in the United States learns that they have leukemia, lymphoma or myeloma? Until I joined The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Team In Training, neither did I.

As the largest endurance training program in the U.S., Team In Training provides its participants with coaching and training expertise in exchange for raising money towards finding a cure for leukemia and lymphoma. As part of Team in Training, I will be competing in a half-marathon on October 18th in San Francisco, California. The race consists of running 13.1 miles.
