national fundraising news

TNT raises more than 35% of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s funds each year. Last year, TNT nationwide raised over $85 million. Ten years ago, TNT raised a fraction of that at $3.7 million. Thank you all for generously sharing yourselves to the cause and saving lives as we happily achieve our goal one mile at a time.

The New York Times recently posted an article on the growing interest in team training and raising funds for worthy causes. Read on.

when you walk, you rock

Currently Maricar and I are up to 8 miles in our quest to finish 26.2! We have an uphill challenge ahead, literally. We have been training at the Stanford Dish occasionally which is an uphill battle, but once you arrive at the top the view is fantastic.

Our tour of the Bay Area continues this weekend as we approach the 10 mile mark. Previously we have walked and ran back and forth between the Los Gatos' dams, toured Shoreline, and completed many laps around De Anza's track.

Wish us luck!
