It's a Raffle!!

I am doing something different this time!

As you know, I am fundraising for Lazarex, for entry into the Disneyland Dumbo Double Dare Challenge in September.

To kick-start donations, I am going to toss in some of my own money as incentive!


1. Obviously any donation, no matter the size, is appreciated! However, for the raffle, a minimum $10 donation is required.

2. 1 entry per $5 donated. So if you donate the minimum $10 - you get two entries! Donate $25? Get 5 entries. Easy peazy!

3.  What do you GET?? I'm doing tiered giveaways based on OVERALL donations! The prizes are cumulative, so at every new level, just add it to the list of stuff I'm giving away. NEW PRIZES TO BE ADDED, THE LIST WILL JUST GET BETTER AND BETTER!

$10+ (This tier is guaranteed!)
  • ONE pair of Pro Compression marathon socks
$100+(This tier is guaranteed!)
  • ONE pair of Pro Compression marathon socks
  • TWO tubes of Nuun (to one winner)
$200+ (This tier is guaranteed!)
  • $25 INKnBURN gift card
  • 1 black Newton visor
  • 1 yellow Newton visor
$300+ (This tier is guaranteed!)
  • $25 INKnBURN gift card
  • $25 INKnBURN gift card
  • $25 INKnBURN gift card
  • $25 Lululemon gift card
  • $100 gift card
4. Since I'm an INKnBURN ambassador, I would love for my readers to get a shot at trying out the brand. If my 15% off code BeckaToldMe isn't enough, stack $25 free money on top of that and you'll be on your way to getting a great deal on the most stylish and unique gear out there! (To be clear, I am buying these out of pocket, these are not being provided by INKnBURN for this raffle - I love the brand THAT much that I want others to love it too!)

Also up for grabs - marathon socks from Pro Compression!! Two pairs are available for two winners!! (Even if you don't win - you should check them out! They consistently have GREAT deals!)

If I raise enough, I added in a gift card to Lululemon. Everyone should have ruffles on their skirt (or, if you are a guy, it looks like their non-ruffly men's stuff is also pretty sweet.)

I also thought about just giving away a pair of shoes, but people are so picky about their shoe choices. INSTEAD... I am going to throw in a $100 gift card to - That's enough either for a pair of shoes or a large chunk of a pair. If you have never bought from them, they ship SECOND DAY AIR FOR NO SHIPPING COST. I've bought from them for years and they are top notch.

5. From now until May 1, donate for a chance to win! NEW donations from today, February 22 through May 1 are eligible for entry in the raffle. (Raffle extended - March 1)

6. This is a great opportunity for BOTH males and females!!

7. I will post weekly occasional updates with donations received for reference.
  • As of February 28 - $25 in total donations
  • As of March 6 - $25 in total donations 
  • As of March 20 - $230 in total donations
  • As of April 18 - $355 in total donations
8. Please be sure to leave me a comment on this post that you have donated so I can track. Thank you!

9. Winners must notify me via email - squirrelgirl44 (at) hotmail (dot) com by MONDAY, MAY 6 to claim their prizes! I will then get your gift card emailed to you within 48 hours OR your prize mailed to you (if applicable).

Why wait... start now! Donate HERE. 
  •  Remember, your donation is tax deductible.
  • The service budget for Lazarex is 83% (or $0.83 of every dollar) and annual operating expenses are 17%. Since Lazarex founders cover the cost of annual operating expenses, 100% of each dollar you raise or donate goes directly to our patient program services.
  •  Lazarex Cancer Foundation builds a bridge to hope, dignity and life for cancer patients and their families. 
  • They provide financial assistance to defray the costs associated with patient participation in FDA clinical trials.
  • They help patients navigate their clinical trial options and provide community education and outreach services.
  • They provide resources for cancer patients who’ve been told they have no other options, but who are not yet done with their journey in life and refuse to give up now.


  1. Rebecca/Becca!

    I stumbled across your blog looking for the halffanatics website a guy from Maine told me about, as I too have this 1/2 in 50 goal...he was doing full in 50.

    Anyways, I love your site! I often look up races and have no idea what to think of the races or whatever...and your log of races is 1) awesome 2) awesome 3) very cool. I will certainly be referencing your blog for any races I run in the future. Turns out I ran 2 races with you, well done.

    Bottom line is you deserve mad props and I just had to show you the love.

    A new fan,


  2. I donated! Good luck exceeding your goal!


I adore comments and I read every single one. Thanks for reading :)
