On Sunday, March 18, I'm running the NYC Half Marathon to raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS). My father-in-law, Bob Machorek, succumbed to acute myeloid leukemia in July 2010 and my family and I have participated in the Light the Night Walk each of the past two years. I started running last year and completed two half marathons; I hope to shave 20 minutes off of my previous time and set a personal record. By sponsoring me on the run, you are helping to fund research that has contributed to major advances in the treatment of blood cancers. Thank you for your support!
