Leukemia & Lymphoma Society TEAM IN TRAINING

Have you ever wanted to participate in a half marathon or full marathon? But, you didn’t have the drive or support to do so on your own?  If this sounds like you, the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Team In Training (TNT) is now forming teams in Beaufort and Bluffton to help get you started.
Whether you’re an experienced runner or just starting out, this is a great way to not only train for a race, but to make new friends and to help a great cause.  TNT participants fight against blood cancers by raising funds and training as a group to run or walk a full or half marathon or a swim, bike and run a sprint or Olympic triathlon in honor of local patients.
Through the support of the Team, the staff at the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and people like Kevin Green at Carolina Sportscare and Ian Hart of Earthfit who volunteer their time to help. You can become a marathon runner and there are no excuses because you can do it.
This past fall, the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society created Team in Training Team in Beaufort.  There were 17 runners on the team and they raised over $38,000 towards Leukemia & Lymphoma research. Many of those on the team had never run before let alone run a race. Everyone on that team ended up completing his or her race. Become part of Team in Training and help save lives.
