The IRONMAN Foundation is proud to partner with The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and Team in Training, to assist their efforts in a great cause to overcome Leukemia and Lymphoma!

The Purpose of James Lawrence’s appearance in Lake Tahoe’s first Ironman Competition will help increase the long term awareness of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s and his Team in Training Program as a world record holder of completing 30 Ironman competitions. This appearance at a premiere event is key when benefiting people like Christian Quest, a husband, father, and tri-athlete

Who was diagnosed with leukemia in December, 2012. Christian is a role model for any person living with this disease. His positive attitude and determination to not give in, led him to train and condition which allowed him to compete in a recent triathlon less than four months after his original diagnosis and aspires to one day compete in his own Ironman competition. Christian is a beneficiary of one of the many grants The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society provides to assist with prescriptions, co pays or medical expenses. Your support and donation will continue to make future grants like this possible for other men, women and children living with leukemia and lymphoma.

Contributions are being accepted to raise funds and make local awareness for The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and in addition, support James Lawrence appearance on behalf of Team in Training at the Ironman Lake Tahoe.

Team In Training is the world’s largest endurance sports training program, and the most successful fundraising campaign. With over $1.2 billion raised for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, supporters of these programs have an opportunity to change the lives of more than 1 million people currently living with a blood cancer.

Along with your tax deductible donation we invite you to come meet James Lawrence and hear about how he set this super human world record and how he supports Team in Training and the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
