A giveaway ...sortof

So I have been truly touched by all the wonderful comments I have been getting and love the support. I was thinking I should do a giveaway and then I thought wait who needs another book, pair of socks or gift certificate to starbucks....well we all do but I thought it might be better to win 25 bucks donated to your favorite charity !!!

So here are the simple rules

comment on this post on what charity you would want me to donate to and why - I will pick a winner on Monday evening !!!

thanks !!!


  1. that is a VERY sweet giveaway. wow. I'll choose Donor's (it's a format to let ps choose which classroom project they want to donate money to. I relied on it often in my teaching/counselor days;-)

  2. This is a fantastic contest!! I will link to all I know!
    I am doing the 4 mile March for Babies for the March of Dimes on April 25th. I was going to post on my blog in a couple weeks to get some donations. :)
    If I win, I will send you my link and you can donate right on my walker page.

  3. What a nice idea. My charity of choice would be Charity: Water,, bringing clean water to those without.

  4. This is an AWESOME idea! Thank You!!

    My charity would be the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. I am currently waiting to find out if spots that I have in both of my breasts are cancer. I won't know until June but in the meantime I've been dedicating all of my training towards this cause.

    My entire family has been touched by Breast Cancer and it's a cause that is both literally and figuratively close to my heart! Any money I raise for my August Tri is going to them!

    Thank You!

  5. What a great idea! My charity is Leukemia and Lymphoma society. I am doing the NYC Triathlon with Team In Training and raising money for cancer research. I did it last year too. My coach and a good friend of mine are both survivors of Hodgkin Lymphoma. I find it such a privilege that they allow me to race in celebration of their lives. I did a post on them too in my blog.

    Thank you!

  6. What a great idea! My vote goes to the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults. It is here in my hometown and helps young adults with cancer, a group that often is overlooked/underinsured/undersupported when it comes to the disease. They also are very active in the running/triathlon community here and put on some great events to raise money. Check them out at

  7. Wow! This is an amazing giveaway and the first one I will link on my blog- very cool!

    My charity is C3- colorectal cancer coalition. My mom's name is Janice Johnson, if you are so inclined, please make the donation in her name. She was the greatest person I have ever known- I only wish I had more time to tell her how wonderful she was.


  8. Thanks so much for doing this!
    I would definitely donate to the Lupus Foundation as a dear neighbor of mine was dx'd with it as a young teen.
    Details about her are here:
    I'll be running the Chicago Marathon this fall on the Lupus Charity team and raising $$ for them as well.

  9. Found your blog as I was reading - I run because . . . I can.

    I'd donate to Crohn's and Colitis - my niece suffers from Crohn's disease and she and her family are doing a walk in June.

    Great idea by the way!


what are you triing
