This weekend marks the first group training for the Team in Training program here in the Denver area. As I have mentioned before Hike for Discovery is now a part of Team in Training and for the summer season I will be a part of the support staff as a Team Captain. For this first weekend we will be meeting at REI for a gear clinic, which works out well as the temperatures will be in the 30s over the weekend. The finale hike this season will be at the Grand Canyon in one of two events. The larger of the two is the Grand Adventure, which is an overnight trip into the canyon. I am hoping to make it to the Grand Canyon for the primary event which will be a day of hiking and support of the fund raising participants.
For this season I will not be fund raising however if you would like to donate towards the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society please let me know and I will send you a list of participants who are hiking and working towards their fund raising goals. As with all Team in Training events, 75% of the money raised goes towards the mission of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, and your donation is 100% tax deductible.
Lastly, if you would like to participate in this hike event it is not too late to sign up for this season. Please feel to contact me, and I can put you in touch with someone at the LLS office. The four sports which make up Team in Training are Hike, Triathlon, Run/Walk and Cycle. Each have a great events offered and even if you are not in the Denver metro area there are chapters all across the country who participate as part of Team in Training.
