For my marathon, I decided to work with Team in Training to raise money for blood cancer research. I did this in honor of my friend Megan from college, who was recently re-diagnosed with leukemia. Thanks to the incredible generosity of the blog world, we raised more than $3,000!
Currently, I am training for the Echelon Gran Fondo Century bike race (thatâ€™s 100 long, long miles). The Echelon Gran Fondo Century raises money for the Livestrong Lance Armstrong Foundation, as well as local cancer research programs and hospitals. I have once again pledged to raise $3,000.
Cancer is an issue that strikes a serious emotional chord in me, and I know that many of you feel the same way. Itâ€™s a horrible disease, and I hope we find a cure soon. Thatâ€™s why money for research is SO important!
Introducingâ€¦ The Garmin 305 Raffle for the Livestrong Foundation!
If youâ€™re into running or cycling on ANY level, you NEED a Garmin 305! Trust meâ€¦this little gadget changed the way I train! Because it has a GPS inside, it can track mileage, calculate pace, create maps, design automatic speedwork workouts, and more. Much, much more! It also comes with a heart rate monitor.
The Garmin 305â€™s suggested retail price is $199.99â€¦ but you can enter for a chance to win it for just $5!
Hereâ€™s how the raffle will work:
- $5 gets you ONE raffle ticket.
- $10 gets you TWO raffle tickets.
- $15 gets you FOUR raffle tickets!!! What a deal!
- The contest will run until Thursday, February 25 and Iâ€™ll contact the winner at lunchtime.
- Following the conclusion of the raffle, I will transfer all profits from the raffle to the Echelon Gran Fondo website.
- I will list everyoneâ€™s name on an Excel spreadsheet (one entry per $5, two entries per $10, and FOUR entries per $15), and the Husband will draw a winner using the Random Number Generator.
- I will then mail the winner the Garmin 305!
If you enjoy reading Healthy Tipping Point, please enter the raffle. After all, I provide you with hours of free entertainment at work, in class, or whatnot. :) It would mean a lot to me to have your support!
