(As always, Complete Running cannot vouch for any of the following, nor does inclusion here constitute endorsement by CRN.)

On with the show!

First up: Kristin Gembis recently joined forces with The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Team in Training and is preparing to run the Country Music Marathon in Nashville, Tennessee, on April 28. Kristin has an ambitious goal to raise $3,400. Kristin says:

Thanks for all your support and encouragement! I couldn’t do this without the help and support of people like you!

Russ Hall, over at Old Runner, New Goals told us that his wife Carol is raising money for the Breast Cancer 3-Day walk. He says:

Carol walked the 60 mile 3-Day walk last year and is planning on walking again this year. She has recently been diagnosed with cancer herself so this battle will be tough, but she is tougher!

Donate to Carol here.


Lisa is training for the Mayor’s Midnight Sun Marathon in Anchorage, Alaska, also as a part of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Team in Training. Lisa’s goal is $4,500. You can donate here.


Melissa is another Team in Training devotee. She has pledged to raise $2,000 through Team In Training for The
Leukemia and Lymphoma Society by running in a half marathon in June. Donate to Melissa here.

A big hand to this hard-working fundraisers, and good luck!
