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 the world's foremost charity athletic-training program, helping individuals prepare for endurance events in running, walking, and cycling while fundraising for blood-cancer research. Team In Training's professional coaches provide nutritional and fitness advice to help participants meet their physical goals, welcoming 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. After joining on May 7 and meeting the fundraising requirements, athletes will register for their chosen event and then complete their 16-mile training runs during 20–24 weekly Saturday-morning group training sessions leading up to the race. Fee-free registration includes travel to the event and three nights' accommodations. Participants display their resolve with a TNT training T-shirt, race-day jersey, finisher's T-shirt, self-chilling water bottle, and a warm, fuzzy sensation signifying victory. Registration also grants one entry to a fall season race, a ticket to the Inspirational Dinner, and a ticket to the TNT Victory party.

Much like philosophical ponderings, 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 honour 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. Athletes are still being recruited, so keep checking back for event postings.

Team in Training

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada's Team In Training (TNT) has led more than 450,000 volunteers in raising more than $1 billion for blood-cancer research, public education, and patient-aid programs. As participants fundraise to qualify for a fall-season race ($3,500–$5,000 minimum based on the event), they also receive a 24-week training program under the tutelage of esteemed coaches who prepare team members to run, walk, or form a chorus kick-line during marathons and half-marathons. Upon reaching fundraising goals, registrants receive entrance to their chosen event, including airfare and a two- to three-night hotel stay.
