The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Team in Training is excited to announce a new program specifically for moms called Moms in Training. We are looking for moms who want to get in shape, meet other local moms, and help fight cancer. Moms in Training offers a flexible training program beginning April 6, culminating in the Mother’s Day Race at Corporate Woods on May 11. Running this 5K in the spring is the perfect way to kick off training for completing the Kansas City Half Marathon in October!
Each Team in Training event features an Honor Hero. Participants can walk, run or cycle in honor of the featured hero. The Moms in Training program is honoring Ike. Ike is a handsome little 2-year old. At the age of eight months, he was diagnosed with Infantile Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. Thankfully, within one month of his diagnosis, he was in remission. However, Ike still continues treatment. His family is thankful for the joy and inspiration he has been for them and everyone around him. It is that joy that empowers them to fully absorb the blessing and reality that Ike is here now, and in that way, JOY BEATS CANCER!
