It’s has been an exciting journey so far for my very close friends Filipe and his wife Brooke. They have been training for about 13 weeks now and are less than a month away from the big day, having raised $1,620! They just need $8,000 more to reach $9,600.
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Team In Training (TNT) has trained over a half a million runners, walkers, triathletes, cyclists and hikers, including them, and raised over $1.2 billion to fund lifesaving cancer research.
So as a friend, I am trying to help them reach their goal. They have trained hard and long, training in most trying conditions in open water and in pool. They have raised nearly $1,620.00, and need help to reach their goal of $9,600. So in the graphic above, we have devised some schemes in order to raise the remaining $8,000. (All donations are through Team in Training’s secure website).
The first approach is finding 8 wonderful donors to contribute $1,000 dollars. The second approach is finding 16 donors to contribute $500. Then that easiest approach is finding 32 people to graciously contribute $250.
Why don’t you also join them in contributing to Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Team In Training (TNT). Donate on their website here. Be sure to follow them on twitter. You can also rock your own Team Ferreira shirts, by getting a shirt from here.
