Date:2/19/2008

The first triathlon to benefit blood cancer research to take place Sept.

14, 2008 in Washington, DC

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y., Feb. 19 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) and the Nation's Triathlon(R) today announced a new partnership that will leverage the surging number of triathletes and popularity of the sport to help raise money for blood cancer research. Utilizing LLS's world-famous Team In Training(R) (TNT) endurance sports training program -- which has raised $850 million for cancer research and trained 360,000 people since its inception in 1988 -- the newly branded Nation's Triathlon To Benefit The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society is the first triathlon in the nation dedicated to raising money to help cure blood cancers.

This year's race, scheduled for Sunday, Sept. 14, 2008, is projected to raise more than $3.3 million to support LLS's research, patient education and support initiatives.

"LLS is once again getting ahead of the wave, and we're ready to put the muscle behind this campaign. More importantly, triathletes are ready for the spaces to open to them."

The new partnership comes at a time when the popularity of triathlons is growing exponentially, outpacing the capacity of existing triathlons. For example, TNT's triathlon program has grown dramatically since it was first introduced in 1999; last year alone, TNT trained more than 5,800 triathletes. Nation's Triathlon, launched two years ago, has grown significantly as well, from nearly 500 participants in its first year to a projected 3,500 participants this year.
