Despite our very last-minute location change (which was handled BEAUTIFULLY by Erin, our fearless leader, and the other volunteer mentors, coaches and captains), we kicked off our Nike/Disney Team in Training season with a great start! One alumni participant shared a personal story about a friend who was diagnosed with leukemia. Just that morning, she learned that her friend had lost his battle with leukemia. Her story reminded us all of WHY we are running and fundraising with Team in Training.
I had a chance to talk with my mentees and other participants, and I believe this will be a wonderful team. I look forward to getting to know everyone better and training twice a week with all of these caring, passionate people. GO TEAM!
