Cycling for a Cure - part 2

Last winter, I decided to take on the challenge of competing in another endurance event for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society's Team in Training. By finishing the SeaGull Century in October, I will have completed the "triple crown" of fundraising for TNT by finishing a marathon (Mayor's Midnight marathon in Alaska), a triathlon (Dave Scott's Texasman Tri in - where else? - Texas) and at last (fingers crossed) a century ride this fall.

Due to the extreme generosity of my friends and family, I have already raised the minimum funds of $2,500. Close to 80% of the funds go straight to cancer research (the other portion supports our training). But, every dollar that I raise beyond my minimum goes directly to cancer research.

If you know of anyone who is interested, please have them donate to my cause: My Team in Training Website

(Big hugs to two of my favorite people who have been personally affected by blood cancer: Rick and Fave...this one is for your two wonderful dads).

I know you will spin those pedals to helping finding a cure for that stupid Lymphoma! And if you are feeling weak along the way, remember you have some extra wings carrying you along. xoxoxo
