Every year Team in Training members raise thousands of dollars for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS) participating in marathons, half marathons and triathlons.  And every year thousands of families just like mine benefit from the support of the LLS in battling blood cancers.  So, I’m considering running in the Kiawah Island Marathon (off the coast of South Carolina) this December to give something back and to work on strengthening my body.  I also think it would be a great way to meet people.  All expenses are paid for training, travel and lodging at LLS events, but you need to raise a minimum of $2400.  Could I raise $2400 in time?!  Training begins August 2nd.

Ideas for fund-raising?

Shop Your Community Day

If you’re in Traverse City, the LLS is holding a fund-raising event to benefit the society (and patients battling blood cancers):

Please join us on Saturday, November 10, 2007 for “Shop Your Community Day” in downtown Traverse City!

More than 35 retail stores and shops are participating and for every purchase you make, 15% will be donated to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

What a great way to get a jump on holiday shopping and help out a local charity!  And it’s EASY – when making purchases, mention to the sales associate that you want 15% to go to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.  It’s that simple!
