My Wife Erika is training to participate in an endurance event as a member of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Team In Training – and will be participating in the Nike Women’s Marathon in San Francisco on October 19th. She has been working very hard and training almost daily in one form or another, she is taking this challenge very seriously – like everything she does in life 😉
Below is an excerpt from her “Nike Women’s Marathon San Francisco Team in Training – Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s Fundraiser Page”
All of us on Team In Training are raising funds to help stop leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin lymphoma and myeloma from taking more lives. I am completing this event in honor of all individuals who are battling blood cancers – including our team’s Honored Teammate and my friend Tyler.
Tyler is now 5 years old, in kindergarten and just started playing T-ball – and after meeting him, hearing his story … he quite the fighter and a true inspiration. It’s people like Tyler who are the real heroes on our team, and we need your support to find a cure!
How can anyone resist that kids face? Isn’t Tyler absolutely an amazing inspiration to raise money and participate? Honestly, I should be out there running, but work demands have taken precedent…this is one way I can give back directly – help my Wife raise money and awareness through blogging!
