Over the past 18 months I have been been on a personal journey of sorts, one that includes fitness, personal development and quite a bit of introspection. Tough times have a funny way of jumping up and underlining what’s truly important, and for the first time in many years I have been able to pay attention to those signs and work to become the kind of person I should be — the kind of role model my daughters deserve.
I am on my way!
A big part of that is the commitment I have made to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS), as a participant in their Team In Training program.
I’m asking you to help me make good on that promise by making a donation to my fundraising campaign. I chose Team in Training because of its focus on fitness, and the work it does in finding a cure for leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma. It’s work that strikes a deeply personal note: my father Richard lost his own battle with leukemia when he was just 62 years of age. It took the disease a little more than two weeks to destroy a marvelous human being, and my personal hero.
So — I will run in his memory, and to be an example to my daughters about the importance of standing up and being a small part of a solution for the greater good. Of taking action, even if that action is just a few miles at a time.
If you’re able, please donate to this good and worthwhile cause. If not, your vocal support is more than enough and very much appreciated!
