Team in Training
We have been volunteering and fundraising with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society for over 13 years. Team in Training is one way we give back. We coach people to achieve their goals to ride their bikes 100 miles or do a triathlon. In turn they raise funds that will help find a cure and support patient services.
LLS’s continued advancements over the years, are responsible for the blood cancer survival rate doubling and tripling; in some cases, the survival rate has even quadrupled.
And many LLS supported therapies not only help blood cancer patients but are now used to treat patients with rare forms of stomach and skin cancers. They’re even being tested in clinical trials for patients with a range of cancers including lung, brain, breast, pancreatic and prostate cancers. LLS funded drugs like Gleevec, Sprycel, Arinza, Tasigna and Zolinza are now being tested for patients with other non-cancerous diseases like Diabetes, Rheumatoid Arthritis and Multiple Sclerosis. We’ve raised over $100,000 combined in the last 15 years. Come join us and help find a cure!!
