Nation's Triathlon Corporate Team Challenge

Nation's Triathlon Corporate Team Challenge

The LLS Corporate Team Challenge celebrates team work and partnership. Each team member will enter as an individual, but will work together as a team for event weekend incentives and to support the work of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS). This challenge is designed so companies and their employees can come together in a camaraderie-filled environment and support a lifesaving cause. All employees are eligible for entry, with a company being able to register an unlimited number of entries (minimum of 3; Age Group Elite athletes are not eligible to participate). Your Team Challenge will support The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. LLS is the single largest non-profit contributor to blood cancer research. We have more than $250 million currently committed to lifesaving science, funding nearly 400 projects. Due in large part to fundraising like this, critical treatment innovations have originated in blood cancer research - radiation, chemotherapy, stem cell transplantation and new targeted therapies.
