My Big Secret Revealed & a Gift for YOU!

I’m sorry I left you hanging in my last post. I had to take several days to align my ducks (by height) (which FYI, didn’t work out so well as they don’t like being crittersized).

But I digest.

So here’s what I was holding back from y’all: I’m running the Chicago Marathon for charity in October!!!

Do what the words say.

Yes, I’m raising funds to help end Alzheimer’s. Why did I pick this charity? Well, my grandfather passed away a few years ago from this disease.

The gramps and baby me.

If you don’t know, Chicago has a lottery system now for registering. But, since I decided to go the charity route, I get a guaranteed entry. But up now I have to raise at least $1000.

So here’s me asking you to donate. You can do so by GOING TO THIS PAGE.

But wait, there’s more!

When you do donate, I will make a personalized Instagram photo or Vine video for you! Just click on those two links to see what you might be getting!

This is one example of my Instagram pics.

I also made a super hi-tech short video where I explain all this:

So to sum up:

1. I’m running the Chicago Marathon for charity.

2. If you donate, you get a personalized Instagram photo or Vine video.

3. It’s a win-win for everyone!

Again, you can DONATE HERE.

Thanks so much in advance!


P.S. – If you want to remain anonymous, that’s cool too.

    Woohoo!! I’ve heard so many good things about Chicago. It’s a speedy race 🙂 It’s awesome that you’re running for charity too. That’s something I’ve yet to do, but I will one day – maybe when I want to run NYC again 🙂 Happy training!!!

    • Everyone says it’s ‘pancake flat’. And the course is supposed to be really good too! This is my first time running for charity, but so far, so good! Feels good to give back! You should totally do it for NYC!

  12. This is great! I’m fundraising for a race right now too. No minimum amount required, but my goal is $1000. Raising money for a charity race is SO rewarding. And I love your incentives. Next paycheck = donation time!

    • Yes!!! Thanks so much!!! I think this Friday is payday here – I’ll donate to you too!! You rock! And yes, it is very rewarding to do this!

  13. That’s awesome you’re running Chicago for charity.
    And I love your creativity for when people donate 🙂

    • Thanks so much! I wanted to give an incentive for people to donate – it was kind of scary signing up because whatever money I don’t raise has to come out of my pocket!!! Luckily I’m almost there!

  14. Great charity! I’m envious… I thought about entering the Chicago lottery but decided to marathon closer to home. One day…

    Good luck with the fundraising. Looks like your almost already there 🙂
