Created 23 years ago, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Team In Training (TNT), has grown to be the world’s largest and most successful endurance sports charity training program.
Since its inception in 1988,when a team of 38 runners trained together for the New York City Marathon and raised $320,000, TNT has prepared more than 500,000 people to achieve their dream of completing a marathon, half marathon, triathlon,100- mile (century) bicycle ride or hike adventure. Those participants have raised a remarkable $1 billion to support blood cancer research and patient services.
The money raised by TNT participants has enabled LLS to fund millions of dollars of research to help advance new treatments and cures for leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma, and provide critical education and support to cancer patients and their families.
