“We are proud to support the Team In Training organization with our new TNT design,” said Greg van Dries, Rocktape’s President. “TNTers combine their personal goals of combating blood cancers with their love of a sport, and their efforts are helping so many people who suffer from leukemia and lymphoma. The TNT motto says it all: “Train. Endure. Achieve. Matter.” It’s how we should all live our lives.”
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) is the world's largest voluntary health organization dedicated to funding blood cancer research and providing education and patient services. Team in Training is the LLS’s flagship fundraising event, and over the past 21 years, TNT has grown into an unparalleled charity endurance training program.
More than 420,000 participants, from first timers to seasoned athletes, have trained with TNT and achieved their best at marathons, half marathons, triathlons, 100 mile century rides and hiking adventures. “Team In Training participants are instrumental in helping LLS achieve our goals,” said Courtney Karnes, Senior TNT Director. “They show true courage and compassion as they train for their events, and their efforts raise awareness and much-needed funding for blood cancer research.”
“Some TNTers – first timers and seasoned athletes alike – might experience minor pains and fatigue as they train,” said van den Dries. “Rocktape provides support for different muscle groups, promotes circulation and helps remove lactic acid from the muscles to help athletes go stronger and longer as they prepare for their events. With our new Team in Training tape, TNTers can ease their aches and show support for the TNT cause at the same time. And to top it off, Rocktape will donate $2 per every roll sold to the LLS, so everybody wins.”
In 2009, LLS invested over $69 million specifically targeting leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma, and made over 4.9 million contacts with patients, caregivers and healthcare professionals. Since its inception in 1949, LLS has deployed more than $680 million to research and fight these diseases.
