Destination Kona Triathlon Store (Scottsdale, AZ) announces a partnership agreement with the Arizona Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS) to be the exclusive triathlon store for all Team In Training participants during the 2013/2014-race season!

Celebrating its 25th Anniversary in 2013, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Team In Training campaign has helped more than 560,000 participants cross the finish line while raising over $1.3 billion for life-saving research and patient support.

In Arizona, nearly 600 participants register annually for local and national marathons, triathlons and cycling events and the local alumni (5,300) stay closely connected to the campaign and mission.

When Destination Kona Triathlon Store opened its doors this past October, one of its company charters was to raise awareness for various diseases that affect individuals by donating store proceeds and offering charity contribution to organizations that make an impact.

Over the years the owners of Destination Kona, John and Brooke Schohl, have raised over $75,000 for various charities- Autism Speaks, Team Hoyt, Boys and Girls Club, Prostate Cancer Foundation, Smile Trainand of course Leukemia and Lymphoma Society – by gathering pledge donations from friends and family members as they competed in various Ironman and Half-Ironman races around the United States.

We are thrilled to embark on this partnership with the Arizona LLS team!

Destination Kona is conveniently located in the Scottsdale Promenade.
