    Default Team in Training - I need y'all's help

    Hey folks,

    This summer my boyfriend and I decided to join the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s Team In Training (TNT). Team in Training is a program that trains ordinary people to become endurance athletes in exchange for fundraising dollars that will be spent on research, patient care, and patient & family support for people suffering from a blood cancer. We will be training for the Nike Women’s half-marathon being held in San Francisco on October 21, 2007. We have several friends who have recently participated in Team In Training triathlons and marathons and had nothing but positive things to say about it. Having seen them go through the program we can say that it has had nothing but positive repercussions on both their physical and mental health.

    Beyond this personal desire for physical fitness, however, is the more selfless motive of raising money to help stop leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin lymphoma and myeloma from taking more lives. The problem of cancer has struck home very recently. In mid-May, my father was diagnosed with lung cancer and malignant tumors in his lungs and brain that did not make themselves known until they had progressed beyond what current medical science is capable of treating. I lost him, Richard Eugene Walters, in mid-June, and went to his memorial service on the 30th.

    In his honor, we have taken on the task of raising as much money as we can to help fund the research and treatment of cancer so that future families will hopefully be able to avoid such tragedies in their lives. There are many people currently living with and fighting these diseases and to them your donation means more time to live. If you can, make a donation today, help further the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s mission, and put an end to deaths caused by cancer.

    We will be fundraising up until the event but have set a goal of raising $6,300 by July 27th. It is an ambitious goal, but for this cause we hope to receive enough support from our friends and family to reach it. Please forward this message to as many people as you can to encourage them to donate as well!

    To donate electronically, we each have a webpage, linked below:

    Most of my money goes to bills, unfortuantely.


    Sorry to hear about your grandfather though.
