As an 84 year old, retired Toronto fire fighter, living in North Bay, Ontario, I might possibly be the most senior Team In Training participant in the program. But I haven’t let that slow me down!
To date I’ve completed four events so far as a Team In Training participant in memory of my son Mike, who had battled multiple myeloma for 10 years. So far I’ve raised $7,666 and I’ve just registered for my next 10k in support of the LLSC. Completing a 10k isn’t as easy as it used to be but I’m committed to crossing that finish line! I hope that I can bring my cumulative total to $10,000 raised through Team In Training.
I walk in memory of my son Mike in the hope that we will one day find a cure for blood cancers.
