We are excited to share with you our new Giving Loop design we just wrapped up for Team in Training Duquette-Graff. This mother/daughter Team, Patrice & Allisa, will be pounding out the miles on their bikes to raise funds for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Team In Training. They will be riding 200 miles from Seattle to Portland to help find a cure for blood cancers.
As Allisa says:
“I have met so many honored heroes over the years in volunteering with the Society and Team In Training. Each story has had its own unique touch to it, and inspired me further to do a good job at volunteering. My main volunteer position has been to help the kids attending the TNT pasta dinner in Detroit make posters to cheer on their parents the next day. Many of the children I worked with had been affected by a blood cancer and each has stayed with me. One of the most impactful statements from one of the dinners has stuck inside my mind to this day. A man speaking to the group said, “Last year I carried my son across the finish line, now I can only carry him across in my heart.” When I realized the enormity of that sentence, I saw how important all this money we were raising really was. We can save lives by raising funds.”
It has been an honor to be a ripple in their wave to bring awareness to, and raise funds for, a cure for cancer. Solid folks making a solid difference. Kudos Team in Training Duquette-Graff.
