What A Weekend: Join Us

It's only Monday but we are looking ahead to a wild and crazy weekend for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) in North Texas.  There are a number of exciting events happening and you are invited to attend each and every one!


This Saturday morning is the last open training for the SPRUMMER season for Team In Training (TNT).  What is opening training?  It is a chance to preview a typical training with TNT without any commitment.  Meet your potential future TEAM members, your coaches and staff person and get an idea of what the next 12-14 weeks would entail.  There are a number of training locations so contact your local staff to find the sport and training location closest to you.

Kelsey Thompson, the LLS Patient Access Manager at Baylor Charles A. Sammons Cancer Center at Dallas, is one of the presenters at Baylor's Super Saturday.  The session runs from 10 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.  The topic is "I Didn't Budget for Cancer" and will be led by Ryan Groce, a financial advisor with Northwestern Mutual.  He will discuss the impact cancer has on your finances, provide a budgeting tool and suggest questions you should ask throughout the process.  Registration for this event is required,

Ivie & Associates, the Big D Climb Presenting Sponsor, is hosting their Annual Rock for the Climb fundraiser this Saturday at Love & War In Texas at the Grapevine location.  This family friendly event is open to all LLS supporters and proceeds will benefit the Big D Climb.  Tickets are available for purchase at the door.


The North Texas Chapter is launching the inaugural Student of the Year campaign this Sunday at the Allen American's Hockey game.  Come celebrate the new fundraising program and meet the candidates at the 4:00 p.m. game.  Click here to purchase your tickets and $4 of every ticket will support the Student of the Year candidates.  Contact Paige Wiebler if you would like more information.

Schools participating in the Student Series program can also raise funds for their efforts by purchasing tickets to this event.  $4 of each of the tickets purchased under a specific school's name will be credited back to its fundraising.

We hope to see you at one of these events!
