2014 is a special year for the North Texas Team In Training (TNT) campaign. It is celebrating 20 years of running, biking, and hiking to raise money for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and its mission to find a cure for blood cancers. Saturday, February 8th TNT will kick off a year of celebrating. To honor the thousands of North Texas TNT alumni and the millions of dollars they raised in the last 20 years, we are going to count down each year of the program leading up to the TNT Alumni "Celebrate You" event on February 8th.
1996 was a big year for Team In Training, both nationally and in North Texas. The signature purple TNT singlet was born and TNT went from a single season event to a year round program. Below are just some of the messaging that we've seen over the years on the purple TNT singlet in North Texas:
Saving lives one mile at a time
Together we train to beat cancer
Relentless for a cure
The current North Texas TNT singlet stands out with a bright yellow outline of the state of Texas. After February 8th, the jerseys will carry the 20th Anniversary logo.
