I am officially launching my fundraising efforts for St Jude! I have mentioned it before (including in my last post), but now everything is officially set up! The fundraising commitment I signed up for is $2,500, but I would personally like to raise at least $2,620 ($100 per mile, of course!).
I would personally love your support as I train to run my first marathon (226 days away - gulp), but more importantly, the money that I raise will help provide treatment and fund further research on childhood cancer. As I am running 26.2 miles, I would challenge you to donate $26.20 (a dollar per mile). However, I know times are tight and every dollar counts. Check out my donation page here.
If raising money to help treat and potentially cure cancer some day wasn't enough, I am also doing a few different giveaways that you can potentially qualify for when you donate...
~~Opportunity 1~~ As a part of my daughter's birthday run... if you run the virutal race and submit a picture and donate at least $5 you will be eligible for a $25 prize package that will be awarded at the end of the month. (Please see the link for complete details)
~~Opportunity 2~~ When I reach my first milestone, $500 (1/5 of my fundraising total), one lucky donor will be will randomly selected to receive a $42 gift certificate for Running Skirts.
I have already had a few people commit to doing Natalie's birthday run, and I am SO excited... if you missed my last post regarding making her birthday wish come true, check it out... Natalie's Birthday Wish.
