Cycling for Leukemia and Lymphoma Society
Cycling for the Leukemia Society in a bike race is a noble cause. The Arizona Pain Foundation is excited to support one of Arizona Pain Specialists employees, Geoff Comp, as he competes in the 19th annual Mining Country Challenge cycling race Saturday March 19th through Superior, Miami, and Queen Creek. He will be racing as a member of Team in Training. Team in Training (TNT) is an endurance sports training program that provides coaching and training support to athletes while they raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma society.
Geoff has quite a challenge ahead of him. As a member of the TNT High Intensity Training (H.I.T.) Team, he has been training for an event that is even more challenging than a traditional long distance bike race. The difficulty comes not only from the 92 mile total distance, but also the 7000 feet of uphill climbing that will be completed during the race. He will be working with a team of 10 other elite cyclists all working towards the goal of completing the task.
Geoff has been involved with TNT for four years, and says he enjoys the program because it allows him to pursue his love for endurance racing, while helping an excellent cause find cures for blood cancers. He has coached multiple teams towards their fundraising and athletic goals, and has personally accumulated over $3000 in donations for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
Arizona Pain Specialists is excited to promote such a wonderful cause, as well as encourage the community to pursue challenges and support beneficial programs.
Good luck Geoff!
