On May 3, 2015, comedy club Stand Up NY hosted an exciting event for “Tri and Keep Up,” a dedicated fundraising team who is participating in the Team In Training program, raising donations and awareness for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Comedian Craig Fox hosted, and a packed house enjoyed a wonderful evening with performers Ronnie Wilkerson, Robyn Schall, Andy Fiori, Mike Cannon, Ian Fidance, Brian Scott McFadden and Gina Brillon—the comedy show raised more than $2,600!
“Tri and Keep Up” is preparing for the NYC Triathlon on July 19; as a part of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Team In Training, the members receive specialized training assistance as they work to achieve their goals. To date, the initiative has raised more than $1.3 billion dollars to fund research and care innovations for cancer patients worldwide. To support “Tri and Keep Up,” visit to their fundraising site.
