Team in Training is an endorsed training program that involves several marathons. The marathon has multiple purposes: 1) to raise awareness of blood cancers such as Leukemia and Lymphoma, 2) to raise funds for drug research to find a cure, and 3) to ease the financial burden placed on individual’s and their families when a family member has been diagnosed with cancer. Becca was only required to raise $1,500 for the marathon, but because we have the most supportive family and friends in the world, Becca was able to raise $2,542! We would like to thank you all for all the love and support you have given her all along the way.

Well race day is upon us. We leave tomorrow at noon to head up to Travers City. Her race begins on Saturday at 7:00am. Please everyone if you could keep us in your prayers as we travel and Becca in your prayers on Saturday I would really appreciate it. This will be a very emotional time for us but especially for Bec. She has worked so hard getting ready for this race. I could never be prouder of her. She has been such an inspiration to me. Also if you would like to leave any words of encouragement for her in the comments please do so Becca reads my blog everyday….I make her! Thank you all again so much for everything.
