BENEFITING: The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society
EVENT DATE: Jan 08, 2011
I am running in a half marathon for Team In Training's Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend Event to benefit Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
I am blessed to be apart of something so amazing. Over my lifetime I have been touched by several people affected by blood cancers, some who won their fight it and some who didn't. It has touched me deeply and upon trying to find a half marathon to run and put my heart and soul into I stumbled across TNT.
I am extremely out of shape and find it hard to even breathe after I walk up three flights of stairs at school, but this is something I am very passionate about and know that my time will be put to good use. I am going to train my butt off and finish the half marathon.. and I'm going to help kick blood cancer's at the same time.
I am running this for every person affected by, or has known someone affected by, any blood cancer. I want to hear more stories about those fights that were won.. or I don't want to hear any stories at all.
We can beat this, one step at a time. I will be thinking that in every step I take towards the finish line.
I have to raise at least $3500, so lets get going! I'm asking that you donate on the TNT page, because all of the money goes straight to LLS and TNT prefers it over crowdrise (no offense and sorry crowdrise!).
Thanks so much for all your support. It's a cause worthy of every penny you have to spare.
I'll be sure to keep this updated on my progress and training as time goes on!
