Racing to Save Lives...

My friend Teri would like to share something important with you all. Please take the time to read…

Racing to Save Lives
Welcome to my Team In Training home page.

I'm training to participate in the San Diego Rock and Roll Marathon as a member of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's (LLS) Team In Training. 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. These people are the real heroes on our team, and we need your support to cross the ultimate finish line - a cure!

I originally signed up for this event to get myself into better shape physically. However, the more I train and meet with the team, I realize what an extraordinary cause this is. When I am running and I feel like I can not go any further, I only have to think about the millions of people battling these diseases, and it doesn't seem so bad! These diseases do not single anyone out. Men, Women and Children of all races and ethnicities fall victim every day.

This is my first time running a distance like this. Many of you who know me, know that I have never been a fan of running at all, let alone 13.1 miles! I am looking forward to this challenge and take pride in knowing that I am helping to find a cure!

Please make a donation to support my participation in Team In Training and help advance LLS's mission. All donations are tax deductible and 100% go directly to the charity.

I hope you will visit my web site often. Be sure to check back frequently to see my progress. Thanks for your support!

Sincerely,

Teri Williams
