Team in Training and Helping LLS

Standard

Angela with one of her inspriations and motivations, Kate.

There is something to be said about social networks and social networking. Actually, many things can be said about social networks and social networking. Through Facebook, I’ve learned about great organizations and great people making a difference in the world.

One Facebook friend of mine, Angela, is very active with The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Team in Training. Angela participates in many marathons, in an effort to raise awareness and raise funds for people battling Leukemia and/or Lymphoma. Angela has seen the faces of many Cancer Warriors, and she keeps all their names and faces in her heart and on her mind.

Now, while I sit at my desk being busy doing nothing, Angela is back in training. She is training to run another marathon in October. On October 17, 2010, Angela and thousands of other Team in Training participants will be running the Nike Women’s Marathon. Each runner is running for a local patient, whose struggle with blood cancer inspires and motivates.

I ask and encourage you to take a minute, access Angela’s Team in Training website and make a donation. I hope neither you nor your family have had to deal with battling Leukemia or Lymphoma. Perhaps making a donation will serve as a personal investment to finding a cure, just in case you do find yourself in the battle. And, on behalf of Angela, Kate and the countless other Cancer Warriors, I thank you for your time and monetary support.

    awww. you just made me cry. Thank you for your goodness, Lenore. You are a hero to Kate, Annabelle, Sarah, Patrick and Logan for all you do for them. Their ribbons will be on my shirt but your dollars will help in their fight!

That was my thought on the matter. Your comment?
