( LeeBob's Crew at Light the Night 2009)
Matt and I have started a new journey this year. Some of you may know already, but we have signed up to be apart of the Team In Training Triathlon team with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. We have been busy going to all of the events, learning about fundraising and meeting our team and coaches. Now all we have to do is train :) Neither of us have been very active lately, my excuse was the baby, but that can only last for so long. So we decided to do this together to raise money for the LLS. As many of you know my dad, Lee, is currently undergoing Chemo for ALL, a form of Leukemia. The race is on June 12. Almost a year from when dad found out he had cancer. I can't wait to have him at the finish line and know that all of our hard work has paid off and is helping our family and others like us to battle these awful diseases. We have a website where we are raising funds and have some information about the event. Please follow along our journey to keep up on what we are doing. There is information about how to donate to our cause on the website as well. We are excited!
