G-Form raises over $120,000 in honor of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society

1 comment

Earlier in the year, G-Form challenged itself to raise $100,000 in honor of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, and is proud to announce that it has exceeded its goal and has currently raised over $120,000. G-Form raised this money through its Team-In-Training, which sent members to the Lake Tahoe 100-mile endurance event. The donations and proceeds will go toward funding Dr. Sattva S. Neelapu, member of the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, Department of Lymphoma and Myeloma. Dr. Sattva S. Neelapu’s research interests are tumor immunology, cancer vaccines, novel tumor antigen discovery, adoptive T-Cell therapy immunological monitory, and lymphoma.

Dan Wyner, current CEO of G-Form and past President of the Rhode Island LLS remarks, “The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society means a great deal to all of us here at G-Form. It is one of those organizations that do truly great things to help better people’s lives. We value, and enjoy striving to support them in any way we can.” Visit G-Form’s Team-In-Training page to learn how you can help donate to the cause.

About Leukemia and Lymphoma Society

The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society is the world’s largest voluntary health agency dedicated to blood cancers. Their mission is to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma, while also improving patients and their families’ lives. The society works to not only fund blood cancer research, but to provide free information about these diseases and support services to those in need. The LLS’s Team In Training program is the world’s largest charity program using sports training. The program was formed in 1988 and includes marathoners, tri-athletes, cyclists and hikers. Since its inception, the program has raised over $950 million dollars, and an equally astounding 90 million miles of training to help raise awareness.

    I am a 2x cancer survivor, Leukemia being one of the two forms. Cycling has been and continues to be an increasingly important component to maintaining my own physical and mental health from time of diagnosis to two successful remissions.
    Since my diagnosis of Leukemia at age 13 and a Make-a-Wish opprotunity, I have been a participant in fundraising for cancer research through multiple distance rides. Recently, having moved to the NW, mountain biking has been a sport of great interest. Due to this interest, I have subsequently stumbled upon your company, products, and more importantly, a deeply meaningful philosophy and commitment to LLS. I will be purchasing your knee pads!
    I was disappointed to find however, that there are no retailers in the Seattle market that carry you line. I think this needs to change and would be interested in discussing an opportunity to be a part for that growth. I’m also working on developing a survivorship support focused program, specifically for cancer patients, ages 18-39. I believe we could have a great deal to talk about and futher develop the growth of the G-Form family of products.

    Cheers for being unique and I look forward to your response.

    Best regards,

    Brendan
