Team In Training® - Brief Overview
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Team In Training program (TNT) is the largest endurance sports training program in the world. Since 1988, when the first team was formed, the program has helped 420,000 people achieve their dream of completing a marathon, half marathon, triathlon or 100-mile century ride. More importantly, TNT participants have raised over $1 billion on behalf of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society®. We are proud to see how far we have grown and how many lives we have changed.  
Each TNT participant competes in tribute to a local blood cancer patient, called an Honored Teammate.  TNT athletes often claim that their Honored Teammates provide them with the inspiration and motivation needed to finish a race.  Participants may also choose a family member who has been affected by a blood cancer.  It helps participants realize the importance of the mission of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.  Our mission is to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families.
TNT participants come from all walks of life – from novice to seasoned athletes. An experienced coach leads participants through a comprehensive four to six month training program designed to suit each individual’s physical goals and abilities. Participants are trained for optimum personal performance and receive sound advice on form and technique, race and ride strategies, equipment, injury prevention and nutrition.  Participants gain a sense of camaraderie by training with their team members and working together to achieve both their fundraising and training goals.  Each new member receives guidance from their TNT Mentor, who is a past participant available to offer additional support.
Each TNT participant is required to reach a fundraising goal determined by the event in which they choose to participate. The Society provides participants the various tools, strategies and support needed to attain their fundraising goals.   In addition to the training, TNT members receive round-trip airfare to the event destination, hotel room (based on double occupancy), race entry, tickets to event weekend parties, race day apparel and other TNT goodies in return for their fundraising.
