Thank you everyone for all of your advice and well wishes on my Team in Training decision. I have thought long and hard about the opportunity and have decided to dive on in!
That’s right I have committed myself to raise $3,900 in support of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and in return I will run the Rock n Roll San Diego Marathon on May 31st!
I am unbelievably excited for this opportunity and invite all of you along on my journey as I chronicle my training and fund raising efforts.
I was scared at first at the task of raising so much money, but have decided to not let that hold me back. This is an unbelievably great cause and I always knew if I ever ran a marathon that I would want it to mean something and I know I can make a difference to somebody out there through this.
Now, with that being said I am going to need all of your help to see me through this. Once I put my thinking hat on all of these fund raising ideas came pouring out of me. I am part of an amazing blogging community and when it came down to it this blog will be my greatest resource on this new journey.
As of this month all of the advertising proceeds from graduatemeghann.com will be donated to my Team in Training efforts. So next time you visit my blog, think of it as a visit for a good cause. In fact feel free to press refresh so we can get those impressions soaring.
On top of that I have tons of idea for blogging relating fund raising efforts. For starters how does everyone feel about a Blogging Bake Sale? Would some of my fellow bloggers be willing to donate a baked good for the cause? I’m still trying to work out the logisitcs for this one.
Also, I have opened a Spread Shirt account and have enlisted the help of Zesty Cook to aide me in designing some fun Food/ Running related t-shirts. I was thinking some funny ones along the lines of “I Run So I Can Eat What I Want” or “Eat Run Blog” Let me know if you have any ideas of a t-shirt you would love to own!
So what do you guys think?!?! Are you willing to help me? I’m sure if we all work on this together we can raise a load of money for a wonderful cause!
I plan to add a page to this blog documenting my fund raising efforts and will post more info on how to donate as it comes available. I just signed the dotted line today so I’m still learning.
Thank you again for making me believe that I can do this! You guys are the best and I am so proud to be a Blogger!!
