Two years ago I participated in the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society‘s Team in Training program to complete my first marathon. I had a terrific experience, made many new friends and raised over $5000 for the organization from the overwhelming generosity of my friends and family. I received a brochure for their Hike for Discovery program in the mail and knew it was time to do some fund raising again.
So this year I’d like to repeat the experience doing something I have a passion for in a place that I love: hiking in Yosemite National Park. I will be training, hiking and fund raising in memory of my wife’s grandmothers Barbara Pugsley and Dorothy Andrews, both of whom past away in recent years due to blood cancer-related illness. I’ve committed to raising a minimum of $3700. If you have not already, please considering donating. Your support is greatly appreciated.
I’ve set up a separate blog to record my thoughts and experiences while training for the hike. I’m sure it will be a terrific experience and I look forward to sharing it with you.
