March 20, 2013
GREENWOOD VILLAGE, Colo. — Leyendecker & Lemire, LLC, an intellectual property and business law firm providing Intellectual Property (IP) and business-related legal services to entrepreneurs, individual inventors, and businesses of all sizes, announces that Peter Lemire, Esq. will train and compete in the Loveland Lake to Lake Triathlon on June 22, 2013 to raise money for research into leukemia and lymphoma.
Lemire actively supports the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Team in Training, an organization dedicated to funding research for leukemia and lymphoma by inspiring athletes to raise money through participation in endurance sports events. Lemire, training for his third triathlon with the team, has set a goal of raising $1,955.00 before competing in the Olympic distance triathlon in Loveland. The race consists of a .9-mile swim, 30-mile bike ride and a 6.2-mile run.
“At the start of each new season I try to figure out why I do this and why I find raising money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society – something that I find I need to do,” writes Lemire on his fundraising site. “I still come back to the fact that if it was me or one of my family sitting in that doctor’s office receiving the diagnosis or sitting in the hospital receiving chemo, I would have some comfort in knowing that there were hoards of strangers out there doing everything they can to help fight these diseases. In a way, I do this because my kids are healthy, but I know there are those out there who are not, and I cannot in my worst imagination think of what it feels like to watch your child suffer and there isn’t anything you can do about it.”
“Together We Train to Beat Cancer,” states the Team in Training Rocky Mountain Chapter website: “Created 25 years ago, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Team In Training has grown to be the world’s largest and most successful endurance sports charity program. Since 1988, the program has helped more than 540,000 people achieve their dream of completing a marathon, half marathon, triathlon, 100-mile (century) bicycle ride or hike adventure, and those participants have raised a remarkable $1.2 billion.” For more information about Team in Training visit: http://www.teamintraining.org/rm/.
Lemire is raising money and keeping his contributors apprised of his training progress on his personal fundraising site:http://pages.teamintraining.org/rm/lltltri13/Plemire. He says, “Please help me in this fight. No contribution is too small. Whether you have been affected by this insidious disease or whether your loved ones are perfectly healthy, your donation will help save lives. Your donation is 100 percent tax deductible and is much appreciated.”
