Did you know you can win a raffle prize by donation through my website on Team in Training?  All proceeds go to the Leukemia, Lymphoma Society.  Here are details.

I’m currently raising funds as a member of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Team in Training. 
Our Mission: To help stop leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s lymphoma and myeloma from taking more lives.  Why I Care: I’m fundraising (and training) in honor of my brother in law, Ed Madell. 
Why All of Us Should Care: What we don’t know CAN hurt us. Every 4 minutes, a person is diagnosed with a blood cancer. It can happen to you or a loved one at any time. 
Why take action now? A small donation now makes a big difference later.  How to Donate: You can donate online in less than 5 minutes and it's secure! Simply go to my fundraising page at and make your donation. The good news is your donation may be tax deductible (consult with your tax accountant), and you will feel great about giving. All donations go directly to LLS. 

Consider sponsoring me for:
$ 1.00 per mile (13.10) or
$ 25.00 or
for $40.00 you can buy a beautiful silver lining necklace from jesslc.  This makes a great birthday gift, bridesmaids gift, holiday gift.  A portion of the  proceeds will go directly to LLS.  Please use code  when purchasing from jesslc or
if possible $150.00 for a chance to win a $200.00 spa gift certificate
More Good News: For every $25 you donate, your name will automatically be entered in a raffle to win a new and engraved iPod Shuffle with VoiceOver.

Double Your Chances of Winning: Donate $50 and your name will be entered twice in the raffle. Donate $100 and your name will be entered four times! Raffle drawing takes place September 19th. Prizes will vary.  Winners will be notified within one week of drawing. Please be sure to include contact info when donating. If you prefer to donate offline, please contact me via e-mail. 
When to donate:  Now.  Donations need to be in by September 30th for recommitment date.  Donations need to be in earlier if you are participating in the drawings.
Thanks for your support!  I greatly appreciate your generosity.  Check out my website (attached) periodically for updates and pictures.
