*Jill Quick McCrosky will be participating in a pilot program with Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Team in Training (TNT) for their first ever 70.3, Half Ironman Distance event, Miamiman November 11th 2012. Please click on the link to donate.
"As many of you know LLS holds a very personal place in my life, I owe them a huge credit for all of the research and efforts they fund.
For me this is personal. I have an autoimmune disorder & blood disease (eosinophilia) and one of the only organizations currently doing research in the area of Eosinophilia is the LLS. I am fortunate to have been in remission for 2 years now with long term steroid therapy. However, 6 years ago I could barely walk across the room without some assistance.
I promised myself that I would never forget that feeling. I am incredibly blessed to be able to participate in (SUP and Outrigger Canoe Paddling and) Triathlons among other activities.
I'm looking forward to proving to myself, that I can do it this fall, I am STRONG, and I will SUCCEED!
That's why I'm participating in this event --to help The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society beat cancer! Make a donation to help fight blood cancers!"
