Worth Fighting For-Whitney

One of the things Laura and I wanted to do during this season with TNT in addition to raising money to find a cure for blood cancers was to increase awareness of this disease by sharing the stories of those who have touched by a blood cancer.

Whitney is one of our awesome team heroes for this season and it is because Whitney is worth fighting for that we continue to ask for donations to accelerate a cure for blood cancers, to raise awareness. This is an inspired call to action.

It is my honor to share Whitney's story with you. 

If you are so inspired I would ask for you to take a few more minutes and make a tax deductible donation to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society  to honor Whitney and what she fought for during her treatment and what she continues to fight for now.

One World One Heart 2011

Welcome to the wonderful One World One Heart Event here at Run 26.2 for Kelly!

One World One Heart is a worldwide event for bloggers only. It gives all those who blog a chance to meet and mingle and form connections with those they may not have otherwise met from all over the world. In the past 4 years this event has grown to over 1,000 participants with lasting friendships (and even one love connection) formed along the way. Think of it as a GIGANTIC open house allowing you to travel without ever leaving your home........going from blog to blog(in various countries) seeing the wonder each one has created and meeting all the fabulous people behind those blogs. As a bonus each blogger participant will offer up a "door prize or prizes"....just for dropping by, saying hello and seeing their world. It's really that easy.

My name is Ross Kinney and the beautiful girl sitting next to me is Kelly(see my About me link on my sidebar for more info.), runner, cyclist, writer, blood cancer freedom fighter. My home town is Denver, Colorado, and I still live in Colorado with my wife of 27 years who is also my best friend, my wonderful children, three dogs and a very unhappy cat. 

I started this blog almost three years ago in honor of  a very special person in my life, Kelly Grubb. Kelly  passed away after an almost twelve year battle with Acute Lymphocatic Leukemia in March 2008. I began running marathons for Kelly in 1999 as a member of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society's Team in Training program when she was ten years old.

I continue to run to honor Kelly's life and what she stood for, what she fought for.  She is my hero and my inspiration for much of my writing and my daily living.

I will be offering three door prizes this year. The drawings for all three are open to anyone in the world with a blog who is participating in the One World One Heart project. Just leave me a comment on this post that includes your email or blog address so that I can get in touch with the 3 winners. I will do the drawing for the prizes with a random number generator at 10:00 pm Mountain time on the last day of the OWOH project, February 17th, 2011.

This is what I am giving away this year :

                                                      Guide to living an unconventional life

                                                        Technical performance running shirt

Rock My World Hand painted rocks

Wishing everyone a safe journey during your One World One Heart blog trip and I look forward to visiting many new places on this adventure.
