Runners, fitness walkers, cyclists and tri-athletes across Palm Beach County are gearing up to kick off the fall season of Team in Training. The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s signature national fundraising program brings together groups of athletes and aspiring athletes alike to raise money used to finance lifesaving blood cancer research and provide financial assistance programs to local patients.
All Team in Training participants receive expert coaching, training schedules, group training sessions and socials, race entry, singlet and hotel accommodations for the event weekend. Each member of the team also trains and fundraises in honor of an “Honored Hero” who has experienced the diagnosis of a blood cancer.
The fall kickoff is set for Saturday, May 18 beginning at 7 a.m. at the Community Foundation (700 South Dixie Highway, WPB). The staff welcomes past, present and future participants to learn more about the upcoming season.
