For those of you who haven’t been following this blog very long, you may not know that my younger brother passed away of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma on December 7, 2005. He was only 18. Since then, my dad has been involved in raising money and running for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society through Team in Training, an organization that collects money for research and treatment of those affected through donations supporting runners. I’d like to ask that you consider sponsoring him in his first full marathon. It doesn’t take much; every little donation helps. If you’ve been lucky enough to have them, think of how grateful you are to have had your family around you this holiday season and consider helping those who may not have theirs.
If you’d like to help, you can read more or donate on my dad’s website.
