Race for the Cure

Hello Everyone!
As you may have heard, Pizza Fusion Headquarters has taken on a great fundraising project (a 26.2 mi project to be exact) involving the San Diego Rock n Roll Marathon! Having run the marathon back in 2003; Vaughan helped to inspire Angela, Katy, Michelle, Ashley, Michael, Lauren and Mike Walker (our California franchisee) to train in this event as members of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's "TEAM IN TRAINING." This amazing organization works directly with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society to help train non-athletes like us, to train for an "endurance event" in exchange for doing fundraising.


(Don't we look like athletes?)

We are fortunate enough to be running the marathon with our honored hero, Jordan, a 17 year old survivor of Acute Myelogenous Leukemia. Diagnosed when he was 19 months old, Jordan was originally given a 35% chance of survival.

Though this is a physical challenge for all of us, it is nowhere nearly as difficult as the battle with cancer that Jordan and others have fought. Cancer kills millions of people and together we can help find a cure. Please consider joining us on this project to find a cure, and help improve the quality of life of patients and their families. If you’re interested in donating (hint! hint!), please let us know.

Your donations will not only help Jordan, but will also provide much needed funds for the Society’s Patient Services programs and research for a cure. Here are some ways your donation will make a difference:

_ $25 pays the cost of a chemotherapy drug prescription co-pay
_ $50 registers one person to be a bone marrow donor
_ $75 provides bone marrow typing for a donor
_ $500 provides patient aid for 1 year

All eight of us are working towards a goal of $35,000 and we really would love your support! If you can't make a donation, then passing this message and link onto your friends and family is just as good and much appreciated!

Please Visit our donation website at

and help us out any way you can!

If you are interested in joining us in San Diego, there are TNT (Team In Training) chapters EVERYWHERE!

Join us as we Race for the Cure!
