The human body is capable of great feats of endurance, be it running a marathon, scaling Mount Everest, or sitting through staged readings of Atlas Shrugged. Build strength with today's Groupon: for $40, you can register for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Team In Training program (a $100 value). The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Team In Training has helped over 440,000 individuals prepare for endurance events while fundraising for blood cancer research. Use this Groupon to train for any of the following events:
- Country Music Marathon and 1/2 Marathon on April 30 (Nashville, TN)
- BMO Vancouver Marathon on May 1 (Vancouver, Canada)
- Dodge Rock ‘n’ Roll San Diego Marathon and 1/2 Marathon on June 5 (San Diego, CA)
- Mayor’s Marathon and 1/2 Marathon on June 18 (Anchorage, AK)
Team In Training's certified coaches provide nutritional and fitness advice to help participants meet their physical goals, and they welcome experienced athletes and green-but-determined terrapins alike. The program adopts a double-pronged training method incorporating personal attention from coaches with a daily training schedule and weekly group sessions. Participants also receive travel to and accommodation at their selected event.
Much like the life of poet-turned-politician Joseph Addison, Team In Training's program has two sides. In addition to athletic training, participants receive full fundraising support, including sample and promotional materials and admittance to educational workshops. All money raised will support valuable research for the treatment and cure of leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease, and myeloma.
