Tim Drost, a Verona resident, was diagnosed with hairy
cell leukemia, an incurable, but treatable disease, in
November 2000. Since then, he has been sporadically
receiving chemotherapy treatments but has enjoyed most of
his time in healthy remission periods. In 2003, following
his first chemotherapy treatment period, Drost ran the New
York City Marathon for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Societyís
TEAM in Training.
Drost, a recreational runner most of his adult life,
remains committed to the cause of TEAM in Training and has
run the New Jersey Half Marathon in 2010 and 2011 as a
member of the New York Sports Club chapter of TEAM in
Training. His sister-in-law and brother-in-law, Carolynn
and Jesus Navarro, started the New York Sports Club
sub-chapter of TEAM in Training in Drostís honor in 2008,
and their team has raised over $100,000 for blood cancer
research since its inception.
Drost is currently training for the New Jersey Half
Marathon, 2012. Drost and the NYSC running team hopes to
raise another $40,000 to help cure blood cancers this
