100 Days! A Raffle! Bonus Entries!

Wooo!  We're officially 100 days out from The Longest Day 2013!

For the second year in a row, Rachel and I will be running from sunup to sundown on the summer solstice to raise cashola and awareness for the Alzheimer's Association for their Longest Day event.

Last year, we had a sweet raffle on our blogs to try to raise a little bit more money, and man.  You guys blew us away with your generosity.  We're hoping to raise even more this year, and we know we have to bust out all the stops to try to get there.

The raffle was amazing last year, and it's going to be even bigger this year.  We'll be posting all of the dirty details in a few weeks when we get a little closer to the event, but we wanted to give you a sneak preview and offer up a chance for some BONUS entries!

If you remember from last year, the more you donate, the more entries you get.

Here's a little secret:
  ***If you donate before midnight on Sunday, March 17th, you get an extra free entry for being so cool and donating before we have a list of all of the prizes.***

We wouldn't leave you without a sneak peak though... here are just a few of the sponsors we have confirmed for this year's raffle:

Allied Medal Displays!


Running Funky

To donate:

Visit our fundraising page, and put us closer to a world without Alzheimer's.

For every $5 you you donate, you'll get one entry into the raffle.

Additionally, for every $25 you donate, you'll get three bonus entries.

(and remember, if you donate before midnight on Sunday, March 17th, you'll get an extra bonus entry)
And one more secret for you guys:
You can start your own Longest Day team
Have you been touched by Alzheimer's disease?  Are you as stunned by the facts and figures as we are? 
You don't have to run around a track.  You don't even have to run at all.  You could form a team of buddies from all over the country and each person dedicates an hour of activity on June 21st.  Swimming, biking, hiking, running, crossfitting, spinning, yoga-ing (what is the verb for that anyway?)

Or you could go naked scuba-diving for sixteen hours.  The possibilities are endless. 
Email me at if you have any questions - and check out for details.


  1. Can we change our activity to the naked scuba diving you suggested?

    To anyone reading this: the raffle items we have are so incredibly awesome, and we have a lot of them. I'm jealous I can't eneter! (and am stuck running with Kim for 16 hours as my prize...)

    DONATE and win something cool!

  2. Well now I have to do 5 more to get to the next level. Do we get bonus entries if we buy you beers between then and now? This could be a beautiful thing.
