The $10,000 Question

The $10,000 Question

Remember how we are not always prone to do rational things? Well, here we go again. This morning we signed up with a progam called Team in Training. It is through the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Basically, we have agreed to raise money for the Society and in return they are going to allow us to run an absurd distance. It’s true.

Really, though, we are very excited about this. It is an excellent opportunity and we are helping a really good cause in the process. The event that we have signed up for is the Mayor’s Midnight Sun Marathon in Anchorage, Alaska. The race is 26.2 miles (a typical marathon) and takes place in June. We have set a goal to raise $10,300 before the race and we are going to need all of your help in the next few months to do it. The money will go to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and will help in the research and treatment of those suffering with blood cancers. We will be sending you letters and emails better explaining things and asking for donations, as well as trying to get your help in raising money through your friends and families as well. Also, if you have any ideas about fund raising please let us know. This is a huge project, but we know it will be worth it. For now, please visit our fundraising site ( to make a donation. Also, please feel free to tell anyone, everyone and their dog about this.

We really appreciate your help and support. Thanks.

  1. So wait, you guys are actually going to Alaska? Is that what I’m getting from this? Or am I completely off the mark. I think it’s a great idea, and if you can run a marathon, all the more power to ya. I’m just glad it isn’t me. As for fundraising, you’ll have to tell me what to do, because I have no idea how to raise money. I can barely get money for myself. Anyway, it’s cool that you’re doing this.
    P.S. Liz, I did what I was told :)

  2. After re-reading your blog, I realize that the site for what to do is right there. I’ll get in touch with Sarah so that the both of us can figure it out together. I wonder how she’s doing in Pennsylvania?? Anyway, I think this is great. I get paid at the end of the month, so expect to be getting a hefty donation then! Also, I think it’s silly that my last comment said “anonymous” at the top! Oh well!
