(Scroll down to the next blog entry for my Sew, Mama, Sew giveaway. But please read this first.)
In my other, other life (outside of work, going to school and crafting), I raise money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) as a member of Team In Training. Research funded by LLS has us *this close* to a cure for lymphoma. And a cure for blood cancers can mean that we find a cure for all cancers.
As a member of Team In Training, I pledge to raise $3500 for LLS while training for the Nike Women's Marathon on October 17th in San Francisco. I will get up at 4:30 and run 20 miles and I will run 26.2 miles on October 17th, you don't have need to do these things. All I ask is for your assistance with this great cause.
As part of my fundraising for LLS, I am raffling off two quilts I've made, pictured below. Both a lap quilt-sized, with the Land & Sea (blue & green) measuring approx 46" x 52" and the Raspberry Limeade (pink & green) measuring approx 42" x 60". Every $10 donated to this cause gets you 1 raffle entry, and each $50 gets you an additional entry. Example: donate $30, get 3 entries; donate $50, get 6 entries; and donate $100, get 12 entries. Winners for each quilt will be drawn at random August 1st.
And your donation and raffle entry is 100% tax-deductible. For more information about this great cause or to make you donation and enter the raffle, please visit http://pages.teamintraining.org/dm/nikesf10/jennifer.
(More photos of the Land & Sea quilt can be found here and another photo of the Raspberry Limeade quilt can be found here.)
I run and train in honor and in memory of all those that have fought cancer. I would love to train in honor or memory of your loved ones too. My personal honored teammate is my grandma Lorraine, who has fought multiple myeloma for the better part of the last decade. Read more about her and the other honored teammates at http://pages.teamintraining.org/dm/nikesf10/jennifer.
I blog about my training and fundraising effort both on my fundraising page at http://pages.teamintraining.org/dm/nikesf10/jennifer and at http://tntjennifer.blogspot.com/.
Thanks for reading and considering this great cause.
