The 'Slogger' is back at it!
It all started for me, the 'Slogger,' 8 years ago... I was talking to a customer about wanting to get into shape and meet new people. She highly suggested joining Team in Training. About a week later I received a card in the mail about Team in Training informational meetings being held. It was fate!
Joining Team in Training changed my life. I signed up to run the 2004 Long Beach Marathon. I trained with a phenomenal group of people of which a few remain close friends of mine. That Long Beach marathon was not pretty in any sense. The pain at the end was nothing compared to the exhilaration of having accomplished something I once thought was impossible.
Team in Training with LLS is working to accomplish a goal that once seemed impossible too, finding a cure for leukemia, lymphoma and other blood related cancers. The funds they receive through the various teams has made a difference. We need to continue to fund the research so that one day the goal will be realized!
In 2010 I joined the Greece Lighting Team, a group of Team in Training alumni and friends, and we were able to raise $50,000 for LLS. Team Quebec aspires to exceed that amount. Yes, this may seem impossible in these financial times but... it is possible with your support!
