We Put the FUN in FUNDRAISING! (a freaking sweet raffle)

Rachel and I will be dedicating 16 hours of continuous activity on June 20th to bring awareness to the fight against Alzhiemer's. We will be running on a local high school track, switching off - one hour on, one hour off, from 5am til 9pm.  We're nervous and excited and incredibly grateful for the outpouring of support we've received so far.  

We need YOUR help!  

 Please consider making a donation to the Alzheimer's Association by visiting our fundraising page.  Every little bit helps, and just might get you an entry into our awesome raffle!  

Here's how it works:

If you donate $5, you get 1 entry into the raffle.

If you donate $10, you get 3 entries into the raffle

If you donate $20, you get 8 entries into the raffle.

And here are some additional ways to earn entries once you've donated:

Spread the word on your blog = +1 entry

Share on Twitter = +1 entry

Share on Facebook = +1 entry

Participate in our VIRTUAL RACE = +3 entries

(We also offered everyone who donated prior to this post one bonus entry)

So!  Here's an example:  You donate $30, link this post on your facebook, 
and run the virtual race, you get 15 entries! (11 + 1 + 3)

The raffle will be open til Sunday, June 24th, and we'll announce the winners on Tuesday, June 26th.  

And one more thing!  Please let us know if there is someone that you love that fought or is fighting this terrible disease, and we'd be honored to carry their name around the track with us on June 20th.  

So, to recap:


2.  Share on your blog, Twitter, and Facebook.

3. Check out our Virtual Race and make plans to run it!

4.  Leave me a comment to let me know what you did so I can tally your entries.

5.  Leave me a comment to let me know if you'd like to honor someone specifically,
 and we'll make it happen.

Any questions?  Sent me an email at, or leave me a comment!
