Art Saffran got involved with Team In Training (TNT) in 2004, when he ran the Anchorage marathon in honor of his best friend, who lost his battle with leukemia. Since then he's run 13 marathons, was named 2010 Man of the Year in Madison, Wisconsin, and has served Team In Training as a mentor and marathon coach.
After 13 marathons, Art discovered cycling. He rode the century course around Lake Tahoe, and the cycle team has since become a group of good friends.
Says Art, "If I were to give one fundraising tip, it would be to tell your story from the heart. Let your supporters know why you have chosen to take on this physical and personal challenge. They will respond with positive energy and generosity."
