Team Survivor Newsletter January 2022

Thanks to each of you for a fabulous 2021! We rode most every week, made countless memories and we raised $133,000 in donations to fund a research grant for The Myeloma Project. WOW! With a team like you, I know the upcoming year is going to be another awesome one. Sending you warm wishes for the new year to you and your families. Thanks for signing up with Team Survivor to Cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families.


We’ll virtually kickoff our 2022 season on January 26th at 5:30 pm! I have emailed the Zoom invite and look forward to seeing the whole team online for the Kickoff! Here’s our agenda:

  • Team Survivor video “From Moab to Kickoff”
  • Mission Moment
  • LLS Update
  • Research Update
  • Fundraising

Welcome New Teammates!

Delna Weil

Please join me in welcoming Delna Weil to Team Survivor 2022! So happy to have her along for the season! And, thanks to Speed Racer Khem for helping recruit! Delna’s father introduced her to cycling (in addition to pretty much all the other best ways of having fun) at a young age. He passed away from AML this past September, and she is proud to ride in his memory and honor with Team Survivor.

Jen Mace

Welcome Jen Mace to Team Survivor! Some of you know Jen from Team NEO and we are excited to have her join Team Survivor for 2022! Thanks to Stephanie Grover for helping recruit Jen!

Michael joined us for some rides in July and August leading up to the Triple Bypass. He has registered for Team Survivor and will be riding with us in Lake Tahoe (and the Triple). Thanks to Chin for inviting Michael along for the ride and welcome Michael!
