Dear OhMyVera Readers,
Some of you are probably surprised to find out that I have joined Team in Training to start training for the San Diego Rock n Roll Marathon! Right now I am torn between running the half and full, so I have been training for the full marathon (26.2 miles!!). As part of Team in Training, I will be raising money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. I will also be participating in the Susan G. Komen 3 Day for a Cure in November for the 3rd time!
I'm training to participate in an endurance event 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!
Last year I had a great time running on a relay team for the San Diego Rock n Roll marathon with my friends Alex, Colleen & Karen. This year I decided to push myself to run farther! I am so excited to be a part of Team in Training and raise money for LLS alongside my friends Nina, Katie and Steve. I can't wait until June 5th to run in the marathon!!!
I hope that you will be able to make a donation to support my participation in Team In Training and help advance LLS's mission. I will also be fundraising for the 3 Day walk later this year. Any donation would be greatly appreciated!
Since I have to be at 25% by March 26th, the best way to make a donation is online through my fundraising website: http://pages.teamintraining.org/sd/rnr11/aglabe
This wouldn’t be possible without your support! Thank you!
