CALDWELL, NJ — Caldwell TEAM Running for a Cure (R4C), participating once again in the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) 2017/2018 fundraising campaign for the NJ Marathon event weekend, is aiming to reach even higher this year with Team In Training’s (TNT) lineup of innovative, high-caliber events in running, cycling and triathlon offerings, with expert coaches who bring dedication and commitment to the program.

TNT is helping LLS’s mission to find cures for blood cancers and ensure that patients have access to lifesaving treatments by expanding ways for participants to turn training into treatment. In addition to celebrating a 10-year milestone, Caldwell TEAM R4C is looking to raise $100,000 this year and name an LLS research portfolio in honor of fellow teammate Tim Drost for Hairy Cell Leukemia.

TNT is the flagship fundraising campaign for LLS, the world’s largest non-profit health organization dedicated to finding cures and ensuring access to treatments for all blood cancer patients, LLS relies on this iconic program to generate funds for its mission: Cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families. Participants join to make friends and have fun as part of a supportive team; to support cancer research and help patients live better, longer lives; to benefit from high-caliber coaching that helps achieve goals; and to get fit. Many participants are survivors or train in honor of a loved one who has been touched by cancer.

Caldwell residents and devoted TNT Alumni Carolynn O’Brien and Jesus Navarro started a community team in honor of their brother-in-law, Tim Drost, who was diagnosed with Hairy Cell Leukemia. The team began with three members and has grown to more than 30 members in a single season—with more than 100 total members in the past seven years having been a part of the team.

The team has raised more than $438,000 since its inception in 2008, and is looking to surpass a half-million dollars by the end of this 10th year.

This year, the team will be training for the Novo Nordisk New Jersey Marathon, Half Marathon, 5k and two-person half-marathon relay.
