Disclaimer: I received free entry to the Marine Corps Marathon through Team in Training as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro Ambassador, and check out BibRave.com to review find and write race reviews!
I’m so excited. I’M SO EXCITED!! A little nervous. But SO EXCITED!!! Why? Because Jackey and I have been given the opportunity to join Team in Training as BibRave Pros which benefits the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society!!! She’s running the Chicago Marathon and I’m running the Marine Corps Marathon, woo-HOOOO!!!!!
And now, we both have some fundraising to do!
The mission of LLS is to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families. LLS exists to find cures and ensure access to treatments for blood cancer patients. They are the voice for all blood cancer patients and they work to ensure access to treatments for all blood cancer patients.
We would both be so grateful if you’d consider donating to our team!
Since we are doing different races, we can’t combine our donations and split evenly as we had hoped. However, if you’d like to donate, we will post links to both of our fundraising pages and feel free to split between us both or donate to whichever page you’d like. At the end of the day, it’s for a great cause so we are both supportive of each other and super excited for this adventure!
Here at Joyful Miles, we’ve never asked for donations but feel this is a worthy cause and we won’t make a habit of it! 😉 And please don’t feel pressured. We realize there’s lots of charities out there and hard to give to them all.
One more important thing: If you want to take part in either the MCM or Chicago marathon and be a part of team in training, we have a code that waives the $100.00 registration fee. (You’d still be responsible for the fundraising.)
For the Marine Corps Marathon: MCMBIBRAVE expires 08/05/19
For the Chicago Marathon: CHIBIBRAVE expires 07/24/19
Thanks SO MUCH for your support … any donations would be truly appreciated! And if you’re running either races, be sure to let us know!
And as always, take care and have a joyful day!
