Goal $2k for Crohn's and Colitis Foundation
My Personal Blog
Another Fundraiser Complete!
The Beer Tasting for Team Challenge was last night. I didn't have a lot of people, but we had a lot of fun! The winning taste was a grapefruit flavored malt beverage that was a refreshing and "summer" taste. The fundraiser gained $127 for the charity! That's so exciting how people can come together and help me with this effort! THANK YOU to everyone who attended!
That's not the final even for this girl. The Schwan's fundraiser is still active (campaign 32389 on Schwan's Cares) and I plan to have a party with a Keep Collective Rep in July.
Hope you have a great start to your summer and set aside some time to remember those who served and didn't get to return home. Happy Memorial Day!
I'll be running a 1 mile race tomorrow and I have a 4 mile race coming up in June in Peoria! Training is beginning. It's a slow go, but I'm getting out there and that makes me happy!
If you came upon my fundraising site from one of my cards or signs I've been putting up....WELCOME! Please join me on my journey to run 26.2 miles and fundraise for Crohn's and Colitis.

Training is starting!
With the race only about 20 weeks away, training is starting!
I'm challenging you to encourage and support me in my training plan by donating to this fundraiser!
The first weeks will be single digit runs, but soon, I'll be moving in to the double digits to run further than I ever have before!
Please consider a donation today.
*To all of the people who have donated directly, attended an event, or purchased items from the Schwan's Cares campaign: THANK YOU! Your donations are making an impact on the lives of so many people afflicted with IBD and I am so grateful to know you care.

First Fundraiser in the books!!!
Some people attended a wine tasting fundraiser last night. We had a great turnout and raised $216 for CCFA! I'm so happy to have enjoyed such success on my first go at an event.

I'll be hosting a wine tasting fundraiser at my home in February. If this is a success, then I will plan a beer tasting in the spring. Other upcoming events include a party at a local Prep Freeze Cook (Bloomington,IL) and a Keep Collective wine and design party. I'm excited for this opportunity to fundraise while training for my first marathon!
Thank you for visiting and please consider leaving a donation!

Welcome to 2017!
Hello everyone! I hope you enjoyed ringing in the New Year! Now is the time to donate to my fundraising campaign! Every dollar counts and my goal is $2000! I have a few upcoming opportunities to help me reach my goal that I'll be rolling out very soon.
My first announcement of the new year is that I'll be logging miles equivalent to the dollar amount of donations I receive through March 1st. I'll split the miles between the elliptical, cycle, and of course running. I would run all of the miles, but my hope is that a lot of money is raised and I'll need to split it up to make sure I'm not injuring my body.
Thanks for reading and I hope you can donate. IBD is something that I hope to be a major part in helping find a cure for.

I have another donation toward my goal! I'm so grateful for a great start to my fundraising effort!
