Donation Give Away

Ok, so maybe it's my lack of awesome posting that has everyone missing the fact that 

I'm doing a GIVE AWAY!

That's right folks. This kid got together a bunch of fun stuff and one of you lucky people is going to win it. 
I mean, seriously, check out all this fantastic gear.

There's some amazingly fun stuff in there, including: GU Chomps, GU gels, a hydration belt, a foot massager, and a pair of wool running socks (so good for running). I will also be including a pink "Running for Mama" tshirt in honor of the fact that I am running my first half marathon for my mother. 

You may be asking yourself, "What is this 'Running for Mama' business and why do I care?" Well, let me explain (for those who don't know or remember). Back in 2001 my mother had a severe stroke. She was barely able to speak and lost feeling on the entire right side of her body. She persevered through months of rehabilitation (learning to walk, talk, cook, and do every day activities all over again) and finally regained the use of her body to the point where you couldn't even tell she had had a stroke. However, since then, she has had 4 other minor strokes, each taking their toll on her both physically and mentally. My mother has struggled through so much; she can no longer dance or go to the gym, as her right side does not fully cooperate with her. I intend to run (and finish) my first half marathon race in tribute to my mother and all that she has had to combat in her life. All donations raised will go to the NSA in her honor. 

So, how do you get a chance to win this banging collection of loot?
It's EASY!

Go to this page HERE and donate to the National Stroke Association.
For every dollar you donate, you get an entry into the give away!
Therefore, $5 - 5 entries!

See how easy that is? 
And once you have donated, leave me a comment to let me know.
Not only will you get the gratitude from this kid, but there's a good chance you could win the give away!
I am going to extend the give away until Sept. 29th. The winner will be drawn Sept. 30th!

I'm really glad I found your blog! I donated in support of your half marathon. Both my grandparents had strokes and I know how difficult it can be on the family. I'm actually running a 5K the same day as your half marathon in memory of my sister in law who lost her battle with breast cancer. I'm doing another giveaway starting Monday on our blog if you want to stop by!
