Running for Fetal Hope Raffle/Giveaway


On Nov. 5th, 2011, I will be running the Rock 'n Roll Marathon in Savannah, GA., with a goal of running a race that will not only qualify me for Boston but will more importantly help raise funds and awareness for Twin-to-Twin Transfusion Syndrome(TTTS) and Twin Reverse Arterial Perfusion(TRAP) through the Fetal Hope Foundation. This is a cause that is near and dear to my heart. In 2003 my twin pregnancy was diagnosed with TTTS and later with an even more rare condition TRAP. You can read the full story HERE. I will be running this race in memory of my son Eugene and in honor of my son Sebastian, who because of an early diagnosis and treatment is a healthy 7 years old!

My fundraising goal is $1000.00 by November 5th.
I have currently raised $350.00.
$650.00 to meet my goal!!

So here is where it could get fun for you!  I am having a running raffle to benefit the Fetal Hope Foundation. Through the generous donations of several companies I have put together two amazing prize packages that you could possibly win!!


Here is the First place prize package:
If you are a runner, cyclist, triathlete or just an active person, Road ID is for you. In the event of an accident, if you can't speak for yourself, your Road ID will. It's not just a piece of gear - it's peace of mind.
 The winner will have their choice of either
