This year, more than $3.9 million was raised to fund the most pioneering cancer research of our time and make a difference in the lives of blood cancer patients and their families. Zausmer employees were proud to help Jim achieve his fundraising efforts, as he cycled 100 miles in support of this great cause. “A 100-mile ride is difficult,” Jim said, “but not as difficult as the fight that those battling cancer must endure. I am grateful for all those who donated to Team in Training to help fight this horrible disease.”
The funds raised by Team In Training help the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society explore new paths to cures, supporting approximately 300 active, cutting-edge research projects in the most promising new areas of immunotherapy and personalized medicine in cancer research. Approximately 40 percent of new cancer therapies approved by the FDA since 2000 were first approved for blood cancer – which has led to breakthrough treatments for other cancers and serious diseases.
The event provides cyclists of all ages and experience levels with breathtaking views of Lake Tahoe and its surrounding wilderness.
