DetermiNation Raffle

If you have arrived at this page via an outside link, please see DetermiNation Raffle Take 2.


On March 4, 2011, I’m planning to run my 3rd Full Marathon.  I’m running the Rock and Roll New Orleans Marathon with the American Cancer Society’s DetermiNation team!

Every step DetermiNation runners take and every mile they conquer help the American Cancer Society continue to save lives and create a world with less cancer and more birthdays. Because of DetermiNation:
  • More people will stay well by taking steps to prevent cancer or find it early.
  • More people will get well with help from our free programs and services to guide them through every step of a cancer experience.
  • We’ll continue to find cancer’s causes and cures through groundbreaking research.
  • We’ll continue to fight back by working to pass laws that defeat cancer and rallying every community to join the fight.
I have committed to raising at least $1,300, and would appreciate your help to meet that goal!
I decided to hold a raffle and the running community has been INCREDIBLY generous to my cause – they went above and beyond and I’m so grateful to each company for all of their help!! 
Here’s the fabulous prizes that you can win!
