Leukemia and lymphoma Society Team in training
I am participating in The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s(LLS) Team In Training program. Team In Training (TNT) is the world’s largest and most successful endurance sports charitytraining program and has raised over $1.3 billion since 1988, with over half a million participants.
Locally, this year alone, more than 500 individuals will train with TNT to run or walk a marathon, cycle a century ride,complete a triathlon or a hike adventure. The funds I will raise fund The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s mission to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families. LLS isthe world’s largest voluntary health organization dedicated to funding blood cancer research, education and patient services.
It is vitally important to raise funds for LLS because every fourminutes someone is diagnosed with a blood cancer and every 10 minutes someone dies. In addition, leukemia causes more deaths than any other cancer among children and young adults under the age of 20.
I am training for the LA Marathon on March 15, 2015 and I have pledged to raise $1,800. In order to maximize the
profits from my LA Marathon/ Team in Training goal, so that all of the proceeds raised can go directly The Leukemia &
Lymphoma Society, I would like to invite you to donate a gift card/raffle prize, etc. Any contribution is greatly appreciated. Your contribution will benefit local Orange County and Inland Empire families who are facing blood-related cancers and will provide funding for researchers who are conducting ground-breaking research in this field.
Thank you for your consideration of my fundraising request. Please contact me at (714)249-5146 if you have any questions. LLS’s tax id number is 13-5644916. I will follow up with this request on January 19,2015. I look forward to speaking with you then.
With much gratitude,
