Going Goofy

This week I came across Cori' blog and found out that she is currently raising money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Canada, thanks to her commitment of running the Goofy's Race and a Half Challenge on January 12-13, 2013 with Team in Training (that's on half marathon on Saturday, followed by a full marathon on Sunday - oh boy!). She needs to raise $4500 in order to participate and she came up with the BEST idea for a fundraiser, have people all over the world run a virtual Half Goofy Challenge and enter the "race" by donating $10 to her campaign. You even get a bib, a medal and training plans with it, plus a badge for your blog like the one on the left.

All you need to do is, during the month of January 2013, run/walk a 10K on a Saturday and run/walk 21.1K on Sunday and send her proof, for example a picture of your GPS.

That's it! If you think you can do it, or you want to get off the couch and start training now for this challenge, while supporting a great cause, follow this link and join the fun!

As you can see, I have listed the Half Goody Challenge as one of my races for 2013, so I'm in! I know many of my blog readers already ran these distances before, so what are you waiting for? I will be running in memory of a young lady who left this world way too soon and whose smile and love of life I will never forget (Holly, I hope you can hear me, wherever you are).

Let's get Goofy and help beat blood cancers, y'all!

  1. Congrats on signing up for the race. Also, her idea for fundraising is an excellent idea!!! (I may repurpose it for one of my fundraisers one day!)

    I was really considering Goofy but tabled it for next year. Good luck with the training. I look forward to seeing your progress!
