Celebrating 26 years as the world’s largest and most successful endurance sports charity training program, the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) Team In Training (TNT), has helped more than 570,000 people achieve their dream of completing a marathon, half-marathon, triathlon, 100-mile (century) bicycle ride or hike adventure, Physical training while raising $1.3 billion for charity. The North Texas spring season program is forming now.
In 1994, a group of North Texas residents traveled to the Honolulu Marathon, officially beginning the North Texas Team In Training fundraising campaign. Since then, the local chapter has raised more than $35 million and trained more than 10,000 runners, walkers, cyclists, hikers and triathletes.
Participants in the TNT program receive four months of training by certified professional coaches in exchange for raising funds to support cancer research and patient services. Coaches craft customized training regiments that fit a participant’s fitness level, in addition to providing advice on nutrition, hydration and injury prevention.
TNT members may choose to participate in one of more than 200 accredited events in the United States and abroad. Once they have met training and fundraising goals, transportation to and from the chosen event, hotel accommodations and entry fees are handled by the TNT program.
