LAPD Husband and Wife Pedal for Leukemia Cure

Los Angeles: A career as a police officer can prove to be an exhausting and consuming occupation. When both spouses are involved in law enforcement, the scheduling for personal time becomes even more intense, and the opportunities to give back to the community they serve can be a daunting task. However, Los Angeles Police Department’s Detective Annie Zibli, and her husband, Police Officer Elliot Zibli, are an exception to the challenge and are providing a positive example to us all.

Joining a national program called "Team In Training," Annie and Elliot, while continuing their positions with the LAPD, are participating in training for a strenuous bicycle marathon to raise funds for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Pledging to complete a 111-mile bicycle event to raise funds for the Greater Los Angeles Chapter of The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, the two LAPD employees have donated both their time and personal funds to buy equipment and reach their goal of raising money for the medical research programs. Since joining "Team In Training," Annie and Elliot have met several children whose lives have been devastated by Leukemia, and the two bicyclists are determined to meet their funding goal with pledges, and donations from sponsors. The extensive and intense training consists of a commitment to ride over 2200 miles in training to prepare for the marathon event, which is scheduled on November 23, 2002.

This translates into 1-6 hours per day, 5 days per week, every week until the marathon!

The fundraising deadline is September 10, 2002 with the proceeds going directly to several research facilities including the Los Angeles City of Hope, Children’s Hospital, and the University of California.

Detective Annie Zibli and her husband, Police Officer Elliot Zibli, are both available for interviews and will accommodate media inquiries regarding their volunteer efforts.

Contact Detective Annie Zibli at 661-609-9640, Police Officer Elliot Zibli at 661-803-7363 or The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, Greater Los Angeles Chapter Office, 310-216-7600 or 1-888-577-4TNT.
