Team Survivor Newsletter July 2023

When Team Survivor began in 2016, my goal was to raise a million dollars for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Thanks to the generosity of our friends, family and co-workers, we have an opportunity to reach that goal this season. If you want to support our cause, there are a million reasons why; for those we have lost, for those still fighting, for research, for treatments, for patient support, for cures and for an end to blood cancers.

The above is our fundraising logo and message for 2024. As you begin fundraising I recommend you include and personalize this paragraph!

Lake Life

Team Survivor returned home after another successful trip to Lake Tahoe. After our flight and traditional stop at In n Out Burger, here are some of the memorable and inspirational events that took place over the weekend.

Friday – VIP Dinner

On Friday a number of us were invited to attend a VIP event for individuals who raised over $10,000 this season. This year’s $10,000 Team Survivor fundraisers include Dawn Dey Turner, John Reumann, Rance McDougald and Delna Weil. Top teams were recognized along with a mission speaker and LLS updates to round out the program.

Saturday Warm Up Ride

We had a nice, short warm up ride to Emerald Bay followed by lunch with the team. A beautiful day in Lake Tahoe and a wonderful time with Team Survivor.

Rally & Dinner

For the fifth time, Team Survivor was given the Impact Award for raising $131,000+ and funding a research portfolio for Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia. Great time with the team to remember why we do this. Congratulations all!

America’s Most Beautiful Bike Ride

After the rain in 2022, what a delight to ride in sunshine and blue skies for this year’s ride. Twenty-two teammates safely completed the ride this year. Lots of miles and smiles!
