Team Tanya Raffle & Virtual Run

For the past two years Allan and I have run the Liz Hurley Ribbon Run in memory of our sister-in-law Tanya and this year Allan's younger brother and his wife decided to join us so we formed Team Tanya. With our previous virtual races we haven't placed much emphasis on actually running but this time we encourage you to run a mile for each person you know that's been affected by breast cancer. We will be dedicating our miles to the loved ones we've lost: Tanya, Aunt Peggy, and Aunt Debbie. If you don't know anyone personally affected then feel free to do one mile in honor of Tanya. Everyone who writes a race report or emails me with a picture and/or brief recap of your run will earn an extra entry.

For all those who participated in our Team ALI or Wounded Warrior Project Virtual Runs you already know about the extra entries you've earned. Here's the breakdown for entries:

  • $5 = 1 entry 
  • $10 = 2 entries
  • $15 = 3 entries
  • $20 = 4 entries 
  • $25-$45 6-10 entries
  • $50 will earn you 15 entries!!!
AFTER you've donated if you want to spread the word via social media you'll earn an extra entry for all those but please be sure to comment on this post letting us know what you do!

Now the part you've been waiting for: prizes! In case you haven't picked up on this yet everyone who donates is eligible to win the big prize as well as a smaller prize. Everyone will win something even if I have to do some more shopping!
