Kick-Off Party set for Valley Team In Training Chapter
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society begins training for the eighth annual
Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon in San Diego
PHOENIX, Ariz., Jan. 12, 2005 — Valley area runners and walkers can receive
expert training for the upcoming Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon in San Diego,
Calif. and raise money for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society with Team In
Training (TNT). The TNT Kick- Off Party is the first step on the road to
the rock ‘n’ roll finish line in the fight against blood related cancers.
Runners and walkers of all experience levels are invited to attend the TNT
informational meetings and Kick-Off Party for the Phoenix area in January.
TNT is the signature fundraising program for The Leukemia & Lymphoma
Society, providing coaching and training for successfully walking or
running a marathon. TNT participants receive a daily fitness program
prepared by world-class coaches, a support team of walkers and runners and
expert advice on form and technique, race strategies, strength and
flexibility, and much more. TNT participants are also guaranteed entry into
the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon, while also receiving travel and accommodations
for the event.
Most importantly, each Team In Training member is matched with an Honored
Leukemia Patient, providing added motivation while training, racing, and
raising funds for research and patient aid programs.
TNT has raised $100 million (net) for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society
through its seven-year partnership with Elite Racing’s musical marathons.
Valley area residents interested in attending an informational meeting or
Kick-off Party may call 800/568-1372.
The Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon is set to rock San Diego on June 5, 2005. The
event will feature live bands along each mile of the course, over 40 local
high school cheerleading squads on the route, a premier headliner concert
following the race and a two day Health & Fitness Expo.
