Congratulations to Team LOL – a Team In Training (TNT) team led by Lynne O’Brien, a chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) survivor who has been training and fundraising through the National Capital Chapter in Washington D.C. over the past four years and is close to hitting the $1 million mark!
The team started small when Lynne, who just recently completed her chemotherapy treatments, learned about TNT, LLS’s endurance sports training and fundraising campaign, shortly after her diagnosis and set out to complete a half marathon while raising funds to help find cures for blood cancers.
Not only did she accomplish her goal - this tremendous effort earned her the title of top national TNT fundraiser that year. The team, which started with 36 members that first year, has grown to 150 members now from multiple states. This Sunday they will run in the GW Parkway Classic, and are about $45,000 away from hitting their $1 million target. Go Team!
