What You'll Get
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). Choose from the following autumn events to receive admission into these training programs: Nation's Triathlon to Benefit The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society on September 11 in Washington, DC; Apple Cider Century on September 25 in Three Oaks, MI; Community Health Network Indianapolis Marathon and Half Marathon on October 15 in Indianapolis; or Nike Women's Marathon, a Race to Benefit The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society on October 16 in San Francisco.
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Team In Training is the world's foremost charity athletic-training program, helping individuals prepare for endurance events while fundraising for medical-cure research. Team In Training's professional coaches provide nutritional and fitness advice to help participants—both experienced athletes and green-but-determined terrapins alike—meet their physical goals. The program adopts a double-pronged training method incorporating personal attention from coaches with weekly group sessions to help attendants participate and finish in their chosen marathon or half marathon, triathlon, or century ride.
Many training programs take place from June until the event takes place. Groupon holders can attend inspiring coach-led training montages held across Indiana in places such as South Bend, Fort Wayne, Indianapolis, Northwest Indiana, and more. No matter where the chosen race takes place, each Team In Training member will receive hotel accommodations, race entry, a Team In Training race jersey, transportation to team events throughout its duration, and much more. Select events may include airfare, so make sure to check all travel accommodations before making your selection.
Much like the life of poet-turned-politician Joseph Addison, Team In Training's program has two sides. In addition to athletic training and stylish swag, participants receive fundraising support and incentives; fundraising requirements vary based on the event. Trainees are welcome to participate in honor of a local blood-cancer patient, and all money raised is upcycled into funding for valuable research for the treatment and cure of leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease, and myeloma.
