I was wondering if you would be willing to post my fundraising event on Good Morning Gloucester. I am currently training to run the San Diego Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon through Team in Training. Team in Training the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s largest fundraising effort. I have pledged to raise $3000 for them while I train for the marathon on June 5, 2011.
I decided to get involved with Team in Training because I work for a national cancer research group and have met many people who have dedicated their lives to finding cures for cancer. This program is a great opportunity for me to do more for cancer research. Through my work, I have met two Lymphoma survivors who both participated in Team in Training. One has run 14 marathons and the other completed a century ride. I also have two teammates who I am training with who are both celebrating 10 years of remission. These are the people who are motivating me to train and raise money for LLS.
My fundraising event is at Jalapeños on April 11. They will be donating 10% of the night’s profits (dinner and drinks) to LLS. I will also have great door prizes and a Red Sox Ticket Raffle.
Thank you, Katherine Faherty
