For the second year in a row, Kim and I will be running from sunup to sundown on the summer solstice to raise donations and awareness for the Alzheimer's Association for their Longest Day event. We run to honor my grandfather and Kim's grandmother, who both had Alzheimer's, as well as Alzheimer's patients and their caregivers who deal with this disease all day long, every single day.
Last year, we had a sweet raffle on our blogs and you guys blew us away with your generosity! We ended up raising almost $4,000 - and it was because of YOU! (We hope you got some sweet swag out of it too!) We're hoping to raise even more this year, and we know we have a long way to go to get there.
I don't want to brag, (ok, maybe I do) but the raffle is going to be even better this year. Seriously, I am beyond jealous that I can't enter and win some of the awesome prizes we have lined up. We'll be posting the details in a few weeks when we get a little closer to the event, but we wanted to give you a sneak preview and offer up a chance for some BONUS entries!
If you remember from last year, the more you donate, the more entries you get.
Pssst: Here's a little secret:
***If you donate any amount, even just $5, before midnight on Sunday, March 17th, you get an extra entry for being so cool and donating before we have a list of all of the prizes.***
We wouldn't leave you without a sneak peek though... here are just a few of the amazing sponsors we have confirmed for this year's raffle:
See anything you like? Of course you do!
Visit our fundraising page, and put us closer to a world without Alzheimer's.
For every $5 you you donate, you'll get one entry into the raffle.
Additionally, for every $25 you donate, you'll get three bonus entries.
(and remember, if you donate before midnight on Sunday, March 17th, you'll get an extra bonus entry)
Thank you to everyone who donated last year and thank you in advance to all those who will donate this year! Also, if you have someone in your life who was or is affected by Alzheimer's that you want to honor, please let us know their name and we will carry it with us on the track on June 21st.
