Support me and the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society

GO TEAM! Support the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society!
I am running an UltraMarathon to bring awareness to the horribleness that is Cancer. Cancer sucks, and I'm committed to reducing the amount of suckage in this world.

Leukemia and Lymphoma has taken away too many people from my life, and I'm sure there are others out there that can say the same thing. WAY TOO MANY.

I am training with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society's Team-in-Training (TNT). They are training me to run the Tahoe Rim Trail Ultramarathon (50 miles) and the Rio Del Lago Ultramarathon (62 miles). Why?

I often wondered what the connection was to endurance events and curing disease. I mean, if you wanted to support an organization like LLS, then you would, right? Just give the money to them. However, how often do you think about disease? Really think about it.

The truth is we don't want to think about it. Disease sucks. Dying sucks. Watching loved ones die sucks. So like all the ugliness in our lives, we put it out of mind... hoping the problem will go away. It won't go away.

That's why I am here. That's why WE are here. We keep this issue in the public's eye. We bring AWARENESS by any means possible. We run, because we can. And by some miracle, it works.

TNT brings in money that goes to cancer patients and their families. 76% of your donation will go to these programs.

Honestly, if I didn't mention it, would you think about Cancer?

I'm running 50 miles to bring awareness to Cancer. Please support me by donating. Click on the link GO TEAM.

Thank you!
