Kristin Akers became involved with Team In Training (TNT) to honor her mother, who lost her fight with ovarian cancer. Two years later, Kristin lost another family member to leukemia.
During her years with TNT, Kristin has raised more than $10,000 for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS). She and another participant also became the first Delaware completers of the triple crown. Kristin now supports the team as a running coach.
"I became involved in TNT to try to keep other families from feeling the pain of loss that I felt," says Kristin. "I stayed with TNT to help other people reach their goals while helping to eradicate blood cancers. I cannot think of a more worthy cause to be a part of."
