Many of you know about my love of fitness and spin class however, unbeknownst to all of you, I lost my Grandfather and Cousin to Acute Lymphatic Leukemia. I do not usually talk about it on my blog as it is highly personal to me but I am making an exception today. I am doing so because I want to share and reach out to this audience as I know that many of you enjoy endurance sports such as running, walking or biking and you may not know that you can share your passion for the sport while supporting the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) is the world’s largest voluntary health agency dedicated to blood cancer. Their mission is to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families. The funds that LLS raises goes to lifesaving blood cancer research around the world and provides free information and support services.
The Team In Training (TNT) is the flagship fundraising campaign of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) and the world’s largest and most successful charity sports endurance training program. At its 25th Anniversary milestone this year, TNT has trained more than 570,000 people (yes, they will help you too!) and helped LLS invest more than $875 million in research to discover and deliver breakthrough cancer treatments that are saving lives today.
The TNT program that runs throughout the year, TNT gives participants a choice of more than 200 accredited national and local events in the United States and abroad. In exchange for raising funds, they receive four to five months of personalized training by TNT-certified professional coaches. TNT harnesses the power of physical activity to support LLS’s mission to find cures and ensure access to treatments for blood cancer patients, and make a positive impact on the quality of life for patients with blood cancer and their families. Check out the TNT website to find a race near you and become part of TNT.
