Rebekah Shirley (left) and Miranda Burns (right) traveled to San Diego at the beginning of June to run their first full marathon, the San Diego Rock N Roll Marathon, as members of Team in Training (TNT), an organization raising money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS).

The two together raised over $7,000 for LLS. Shirley finished in a time of 4 hours and 30 minutes while Burns finished in a time of 5 hours and 10 minutes. Shirley and Burns ran in honor of Julie Crotts, and in memory of Donna Shirley, Elaine Trenkamp, and Brooke Minor, writing their names on their jerseys.
