How did this happen, you ask? A good friend of mine is running the Los Angeles Rock N’ Roll Half Marathon at the end of October as part of “Team in Training,” the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society‘s largest fundraising campaign, offering sports training programs for marathons, half marathons, triathlons, Ironman races, and century rides. Basically she’s not only committing to running 13.1 miles, but raising a couple thousand dollars for a good cause as well. As part of her efforts to fundraise, she recently approached me to help her organize a music event under the banner of Tadpole Audio, where part/all (as much as possible) of the proceeds will go the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. As someone who feels passionate about all things involved – music, supporting a good cause, and the occasional running of half-marathons – added to the fact that the event is a “Rock ‘N Roll” half marathon – I was naturally all for it. And so Rock Out to Beat Cancer was born!
