>In memory of my mother-in-law, Helga McNair and a friend, Ann Emerson, I am, for the third and final time, joining Team in Training (TNT)h to help raise funds for the Leukemia Lymphoma Society (LLS).
>LLS is one of the largest sources for funding of research for cures and more effective treatments of blood cancer. These include leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma.
>To support this cause is an honor. But, for me, personally, it goes beyond that.
>My initial experience with TNT (2008) in the Nike Women's half-marathon walk was inspiring. Last fall I did my first triathlon with the team (the Mighty Mermaid Sprint triathlon). It was one of the best experiences I've ever had and the effect on my PD (Parkinson's Disease) symptoms was almost miraculous!
>Please make a donation in support of my efforts with Team in Training and help advance the research for cures of blood cancer as well as my personal fight to hold PD as much at bay for as long as possible. No amount is too small. The website to donate is here:
My mentee group is also selling a custom designed triathlon tshirt at the following website:
