Training for a Cure

Hi guys! Thanks for coming to our website. For quite sometime, Tony and I have felt it in our hearts to make a difference not only our lives, but for the lives of others. We’ve searched for activities and events where could volunteer and have a postitive impact on others. Cancer has always been a very important and personal issue that we’ve eager to support. So many individuals within our family and friends have been diagnosed with various types of cancer. When I was younger, I used to think that only “other” people get cancer. Not anyone that I personally knew. But as time goes by more and more people within our circle are getting diagnosed and sometimes losing their battle. In 2004, Tony’s mom lost her long battle with cancer. What started out as breast cancer, spread to her lymph nodes, brain, bone and eventaully to her lungs. It was a very emotionally challenging time for Tony and his family. As it hits closer to home, it fuels our desire to help find a cure and hopefully save lives.

We have been inspired by the stories and challenges of current cancer patients and honorees. To do our part and help find a cure, we have decided to complete an Olympic-distance triathlon to raise money for leukemia and other cancers. Together we have set some high goals: swim 1 mile, bike 25 miles and run 6 miles in order to raise $10,000 this year. I know you’re all probably thinking I’m crazy. I can barely swim a lap and totally fear the open water. I may not have all the atlheltic abilites, but it’s for a great cause and I have the determination to do it! It’s all heart baby! And to make that happen, we really need your support.

In the next couple of months we will be training and fundrasing with fellow teammates from the Bay Area who are all doing this to raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. As a team, we hope to raise several hundred thousand dollars this winter – with your help. Donate Now!

Check back often and we’ll keep you up to date on our training.

    Your website looks lonely so I decided to catch up on it. I really commend you guys for trying to make a difference in the lives of others. I truly am in awe and admire the amount of time and energy you’re devoting to this. I’m sure when it’s all said and done, you’ll not only make yourselves proud but all those dearest to you, including the ones that inspired you to do this in the first place.
