Campbell Runs in Cousin's Memory
Consider it a Christmas gift for a cousin who never lived to see the holiday in 1998. Pete Campbell, a local resident of Farmingdale, will participate in the St. Anthony's Triathlon in St. Petersburg, FL, as a member of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society's Team in Training (TNT). The event is of Olympic proportions, involving a 1.5K swim, a 40K bike ride and topped off with a 10K run. Campbell's goal is to raise $5,000 for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society to help find a cure for the diseases which include Hodgkin's disease, myeloma and non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma (NHL), the disease that claimed Campbell's cousin, Dennis Drohan's life four years ago.
