When hubby and I ran the Baltimore Marathon in October, we ran for Team Fight for The Ulman Cancer Fund. It was a great experience and we were thrilled to raise money for their organization. I am currently training for the Rock ‘n Roll USA Marathon with Team in Training for The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. I feel a tad guilty asking all the same people who just donated to my last charity run to donate to yet another one. Therefore, I’m trying to be creative this time around.
My mom recently asked me if I’d do some baking for a couple holiday parties she was hosting. She offered to pay me, but I refused because I would never charge my family for me to bake for them! Then I thought, hmm…it is a lot of baking and it would be a great way to raise money for TNT. So I told her that instead of paying me, she could make a donation to TNT. I told her she could decide the amount she donated. And with that, I’m almost 50% to my goal!
She had holiday parties 2 weekends in a row. Here are the yummy treats I made for her (which by the way, everyone loved!):
Obviously these pictures have nothing to do with running so I will leave you with one that sort of does – I’m wearing my snazzy hot pink compression socks post-long run in this picture :).
Have you ever run with a charity team? What were some creative things you did for fundraising?
