Just wanted to put a plug in for another blog…www.runfastermommy.com. The woman behind this blog, Heather, has come up with a fun idea for raising money for a great cause.
Heather has put together a spectacular goodie basket full of stuff all runners love–stuff like Gu, running hats and a road ID gift card. It takes just $5 to enter the raffle, which will be held at the end of the month. All proceeds are going to the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults.
Ulman is a great organization, one right here in my hometown. As the name implies, Ulman supports young adults with cancer. This is an often overlooked population when it comes to the disease, but a population that needs support. Check out Ulman at http://ulmanfund.org/ for more information.
As an aside, for runners and triathletes out there, Ulman puts together Team Fight each year, a group of athletes who participate in a variety of events and raise money for the cause. More info on the web site
Like I said, this is a great cause, one that’s easy to get behind. Please consider donating to Heather’s raffle…just don’t win the basket–I want it!
