Toughness. Kindness. A little faith. Those are the things that change us from a group of people to a team. On June 22nd, 2019, our team will mmet at CrossFit Sua Sponte and keep a rowing machine going for 24 straight hours. Our goal is to raise $100/hr for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
Toughness: In 24 hours, we will row over 170 miles, a greater distance than the drive from Raleigh to Charlotte. We will burn over 16,000 calories, more than the average person burns in an entire week.
Kindness: In 24 hours, 480 people in the United States will be diagnosed with a blood cancer. That isn't anyone's fault, but it is our responsibility. Can you sponsor an hour of rowing with $100? Can you cover a percent of our goal with $24? Any donation makes you part of our team.
A little faith: The survival rate for blood cancers has more than quadrupled since The Leukemia & Lympohoma Society was founded. You may never meet the person whose life you save, but they are real people. The kindness and generosity of people like you and me--like us--truly matters.
