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 $25, you can register for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Team In Training program (a $100 value).
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Team In Training is a charity athletic-training program, helping individuals prepare for endurance events while fundraising for blood-cancer research. Use this Groupon to train for any of the following events with Gateway Chapter:
- Chicago Triathlon on August 28 (Chicago, IL)
- Honolulu Century Ride on September 25 (Honolulu, HI)
- Nike Women's Marathon, A Race to Benefit The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society on October 16 (San Francisco, CA)
- Solutia Rock 'n' Roll St. Louis Marathon and 1/2 Marathon on October 23 (St. Louis, MO)
- Hike Zion National Park on October 29 (Springdale, UT)
Team In Training's 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 weekly group sessions. Participants also receive travel to and accommodations at their selected event, provided they meet their fundraising goals.
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 upon reaching their fundraising goal, 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.
