New Video: Volunteering with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society

My bro-in-law Justin Adkinson filmed this great video of me talking about my 10 year volunteer experience with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society doing over 20 different events (marathons, halfs, 100 mile bike rides, mountain bike rides, walks, 10Ks, 5Ks, etc…) and raising over $100K for research and patients. Watch the video below and see how you can help raise $10K in 10 Weeks.

 

BTW, I love Vimeo for the amazing video content! The videographers on Vimeo are far superior than YouTube don’t you think or is it just more concentrated. Comment below and hope you can help out the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

Looking for Leukemia, Lymphoma, and Myeloma Survivors

This upcoming May to October I will be the honoree captain for the Peninsula marathon team based at Stanford Track. My role is to make the Team In Training participants connected with the cause by introducing them to cancer survivors, caregivers, doctors, and those that are affected by this terrible disease.  I’ve been with TNT since the summer of 2001 and have seen several friends pass away as well as suffer thru chemotherapy and radiation. It’s a terrible disease and something that I’m motivated to fundraise for and keep people motivated in fundraising for.  Each week on my blog I plan on writing a short post about the disease to hopefully educated you on why I’m so addicted and what a small group of people at Stanford Track every Tuesday can make a huge  difference in the lives of patients, caregivers, and doctors.

If you are a leukemia, lymphoma, and myeloma survivor and interested in motivating 100-200 runners/walkers to find a cure, ping me asap at rksar at yahoo dot com.

P.S. To train for a half-marathon or full-marathon at Stanford every Tuesday evening, Thursday, and run on Saturday at a regional park ping me at rksar at yahoo dot com or comment on the blog post below. We take every individual no matter what their previous experience is. We start you at 1 mile and every couple of weeks add a couple extra miles till you reach 13.1 or 20 miles. Coach potatoes are highly encouraged to join and experts looking to improve their marathon time are welcome too. The coaches are top notch and you will have a great time in a very collaborative and fun environment which usually isn’t thought of when someone says “running”.

Stand Up 2 Cancer!

Free $5 Starbucks Gift Card w/ every $100 or More Donation

hey all. My training is finishing up in the next week with the Honolulu Century (100 miles) bicycle ride happening on 9/28 in support of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society!! It’s been a tough season with weekly hilly workouts and long rides on Saturdays. I even took Pilates classes to stretch my sore muscles every Monday at the YCMA. Not only was I getting in shape but raising crucial dollars for research and patient services. 

My goal is to raise $5000 by next Wednesday and every little bit helps. For every person that donates $100 or more I’ll send you a $5 Starbucks gift card ! A non-fat triple shot latte on me! We all can make a difference in curing cancer!
