Many of you know the birth story of my little monkey, Lily. I developed preeclampsia and had to have an emergency c-section. She was born weighing 3lbs 15ozs. She spent 2 weeks in the NICU. We are very blessed that she was totally healthy, just little with no fat to help her keep warm. We learned so much from the amazing nurses and the care she received in the NICU at Renown Northern Nevada. This NICU is part of the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. I feel so fortunate to now have a healthy happy 5 year old and I want to give back and so does my little monkey. We are raising money for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and running the Princess Half Marathon Weekend at Disney World. I will be running the 5k, 10k, half marathon and joining Lily to run her 200m dash Kids Race and the 1-Mile Kids Race. Lily is already planning a lemonade stand to raise money towards our fundraising. She also plans to bake cookies.
To kick off fundraising I am doing a big giveaway! BIG!!! For every $10 someone donates they get an entry into the giveaway. Example: if you donate $20 you get 2 entries, $100 is 10 entries. You get the idea right? Remember that since these are donations they are tax deductible and go to an amazing charity! Here are the thank you prizes I am giving away from some great companies:
A TomTom Runner GPS watch! This is an awesome GPS enabled watch and we all know how runners need good gadgets right?!?! It is a very versatile navy and green. Some of the awesome features are QuickGPSFix which helps your watch find your location quickly so you can get going faster, set your own interval training program, and extra-large display to see real-time running info at a glance.
A Dr. Cool medium size wrap. Replace your ice pack with a Medium 4” Dr. Cool Recovery-On-The-Go Ice Wrap. It combines compression and cold therapy to help reduce swelling and speed up recovery. The Medium 4″ Dr. Cool wrap can be used as an injury wrap on your knee, elbow or ankle and can also be used as a dry compression wrap to support and protect your body.
Click here to go to my fundraising page. No amount is too little and it all goes to help an amazing cause. Remember every $10 gets you an entry into the giveaway as a thank you. I will be using RandomPick.com to pick the giveaway winners.
Thank you all so much!!! I wish no one would ever have a child in a hospital, but for people that have to experience it I truly believe that raising money for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals can help.
Remember that these thank you prizes can also make great gifts if you win one! The giveaway will end at 2pm pacific time on August 11th.
How do you like the thank you prizes?
