The ProgramTeam In Training (TNT) is the world's largest endurance sports training program and fundraising program of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. TNT provides you with a supportive team and exceptional coaching to help you reach your personal fitness goals while making a difference in the lives of blood cancer patients and their families. Make a DifferenceOne of the most unique and special aspects of the Team In Training program is that participants fundraise and train in honor or memory of an individual diagnosed with cancer. This "honoree" can be someone in your own life who has been affected by cancer, or one of the honored teammates you will meet through the program. Throughout the season we will share stories, learning more and developing a stronger commitment to our shared goal as we go. Through our honored teammates, we will witness the bravery and spirit shown by patients and their families every day - their experiences inspire and motivate us to test the limits of endurance and successfully complete our walk, run, hike, ride or triathlon. FundraisingThroughout the season you will be fundraising to raise critical, life-saving dollars to fund The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's mission: to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma and improve the quality of lives for patients and their families.
