Success Story: Gail Munzing RN


My husband, Dr. Timothy Munzing, and myself devote ourselves to training for endurance athletic events to benefit the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. We have decided to form a team (comprised of colleagues, employees and friends) to train for an upcoming event…TEAM UP TO FIGHT CANCER!

This summer we are teaming up with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) and Team in Training (TNT) to empower individuals like you to complete in the Las Vegas Rock ‘n Roll Marathon and Half Marathon endurance event, while helping to raise life-saving dollars to find cures and improve the lives of cancer patients.

As part of Team Up To Fight Cancer, employees will experience working together to achieve a collective goal while directly impacting their personal health and fitness. Be active. Make new friends. Achieve a goal. Give back to those affected by cancer. Thousands of people participate in The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS)- Team In Training® (TNT) each year for all of these reasons. TNT attracts people looking for a more active lifestyle and a way to join the fight against cancer. TNT not only motivates teammates ranging from beginners to seasoned athletes to change their own lives, but gives them an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of thousands of cancer patients and their families.

TNT is the world’s largest charitable endurance sports training program. Participants receive professional coaching, nutrition tips and a personal training schedule while raising funds for blood cancer research and patient services, getting us closer to a world without cancer – one step at a time.
