The biggest new news is that I signed on to run a marathon with Team in Training. This is the largest fundraising organization for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. So basically I am running with a cause and accepting donations towards finding the cure to these blood cancers.
What is the big deal about Leukemia and Lymphoma anyways? Well, according to the Society's website every 4 minutes someone is diagnosed with a blood cancer and every 10 minutes someone dies from one. The money I am fundraising goes towards research for finding the cure to these blood cancers, this way this terrible death rate can be decreased!
I am running with an Honored Teammate, his name is Josh and he is seven years old. Just last August he was diagnosed and is now going through chemotherapy. Please consider donating money for my race (which is the Rock 'n' Roll San Diego marathon) towards this worthy cause!
