Brooklyn Charity: Leukemia & Lymphoma Society

Saving the lives of blood cancer patients ROCKS!
 The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Team In Training (TNT) will get you primed for the Brooklyn Rock ‘n’ Roll Half Marathon.

You’ll train for the half marathon with one goal in mind: to find cures and ensure access to treatments for blood cancer patients. Since the start of TNT more than 600,000 participants have helped The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society invest more than $1 billion for blood cancer research that’s saving lives as you read this. The funds raised have helped to advance targeted therapies that zero in on cancer cells and kill them, as well as immunotherapies that continue to evolve every day into better and more effective treatments.

Train with TNT for Brooklyn. Our coaches will be with you every step of the way, whether you’re a first-time marathoner or an experienced athlete training for a personal best. Run or walk with TNT and save lives not someday, but today

Please click here for more information on how to register with TNT for this year’s Brooklyn Rock ‘n’ Roll Half Marathon!

  • Help save lives by fundraising while you train.
  • Help improve the lives of patients and their families.
  • Get us all closer to a world without blood cancers.

This is what TNT can do for you:
