The Guardsmen Raffle

On August 3rd, I am competing as a member of The Guardsmen Trail Run Team in the Angel Island 12K Race to raise money for Bay Area at-risk youth and the Saint Francis Memorial Hospital.

I became a big fan of The Guardsmen after participating in their Presidio 10 race last year and then again when I did one of their trail training runs earlier this year- I met a lot of The Guardsmen volunteers and after speaking with them about their cause, I was happy to help spread the word.

The Guardsmen help at-risk Bay Area youth by providing outdoor education programs and scholarships. They are committed to making sure that fundraising dollars are spent wisely- approximately 90 cents of every dollar raised goes directly to support programs for kids- so I am holding a raffle in their honor!

To enter the raffle, please visit my fundraising page and make a donation here– $1 gets you 1 entry, $5 gets you 5, and $10 gets you 10 entries! Every donation counts toward helping kids in need, no matter the amount.

Following are the prizes I have so far and- you know me- more will be announced this week so be sure to follow me on Facebook or Twitter to stay tuned for updates.

First up is a $50 gift certificate to Allied Medal Displays!

One pair of RecoFiT Arms Coolers, a $35 value!


One lilac performance tee from Run Pretty Far ($28 value)

One single track focus tee from Run Pretty Far ($34 value)

Winner’s choice of one bra from the Handful collection– up to a $45 value!

Winner’s choice of a signed copy of Train Like a Mother OR Run Like a Mother book plus a “Don’t Think; Just Go” magnet, and a Another Mother Runner bumper sticker ($22 value).

And for my Bay Area friends, I will hold a separate raffle drawing for
2 tickets to the 2013-2014 Zellerbach Hall series of the Berkeley Symphony,
mid-orchestra seats
– a $96 value!
