Team in Training claims to be the world's largest endurance sports training program. Part of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, Team in Training provides running and cycling training to local athletes so they can participate in endurance events such as marathons, centuries or double centuries and triathlons. TNT provides professional coaches and assigns each participant a mentor who has previously participated in an endurance event with the organization; the organization also covers registration and travel costs to events. In exchange for this support, athletes promise to solicit donations for the organization, which funds research to cure blood cancers and aid patients battling those cancers. There are several opportunities throughout the training to meet team honorees, who are either patients with a blood cancer or cancer survivors.
