For those of you who don't know me well, my father passed away in July of last year due to complications from treatment for a relapse of his Acute Myeloid Leukemia. I've been wanting to do something in his honor, preferably something that would help others. I'm also a bicyclist who is far from a professional.
So, I put the two together and decided to join the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Team In Training. I am training to ride my Specialized Allez Sport bicycle 100 miles at their event at Lake Tahoe in June. (The most I've ridden at one time is 25 miles). More importantly, we are raising funds to help
stop leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin lymphoma and myeloma from taking more
lives. Hopefully, by donating money for research, scientists will be able to develop a cure for these diseases. My goal is to raise $3,600 and I will have to cover whatever I can't collect. I have to raise close to $1,000 by March to keep training with the team.
Please make a donation to support my participation in Team In Training and to help advance the Society's mission. Anything you can contribute will be appreciated. My donation webpage takes credit cards and of course, donations are tax deductible.
Thanks for your support!
