Mission Statement

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society is the world's largest voluntary health organization dedicated to funding blood cancer research, education and patient services. The Society's mission: Cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families. Since its founding in 1949, the Society has invested more than $424 million for research specifically targeting blood cancers.

Description

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Team In Training is the world's largest endurance sports training program. The program provides training to run or walk a whole or half marathon or participate in a triathlon or century (100-mile) bike ride. Since 1988, more than 275,000 volunteer participants have helped raise more than $600 million.

In exchange for training and support, participants raise money towards cures for the blood cancers leukemia, Hodgkin and non-Hodgkin lymphoma and myeloma. These cancers take the lives of thousands of Americans - young and old - every year.
