The Chamber is proud to announce its newest Community Partner of the year, the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and its Team in Training Program!
About Team in Training
Team In Training (TNT) is the largest fundraising campaign of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) and is the world’s leading sports charity training program. TNT participants have raised over $1.3 Billion for life saving cancer research therapies that are saving lives today. Individuals and teams commit to raising funds for blood cancer research and in exchange are provided with professional training to complete a marathon, half marathon, century cycle ride, triathlon or hike event.
Team in Training athletes have walked away with new friends, amazing accomplishments and the sense that they did something even more important than getting in good shape. In exchange for training and support, you help raise money towards cures for blood cancers like leukemia –the No. 1 disease killer of children — lymphoma and myeloma.
