On January 10, 2015, I will run 13.1 miles (a half marathon) with CCFA’s Team Challenge to raise $5,000 for Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis research and support.
Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis affect an estimated 1.4 million Americans and Crohn’s nearly cost me my life. The good news is that significant progress is being made in understanding these diseases and working toward a cure! Please donate toward this important cause.
On Tuesday August 26, I’ll be hosting a very special event in our effort to Imagineer a Cure for Crohn’s. Stop by The Bay in Whitefish Bay for lunch, dinner and/or drinks on that day and 10% of your food and drinks purchase will be donated to CCFA. (Note: You need to print and present one of these coupons to participate.)
As part of the event, we’ll also be holding a Silent Auction from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM. Stop in during that time to bid on great auction items donated by area merchants and others. Hope you can join us!
Donors at various levels will receive the following thank you items:
$25 — Personalized “Thank You” Postcard from Walt Disney World
If you donate $25 or more, I’ll send you a handwritten postcard from the race finish line in Orlando. Donate Now
$50 — 5 x 7 Matted Photo
I’ll be snapping photos throughout my run. If you donate $50 or more, I’ll send you a link to my run photos and let you choose one to receive as a 5 x 7 matted print. Donate Now
$100 — A Collectors “Imagineering a Cure” Race Day Shirt
During my run, I’ll wear a special “Imagineering a Cure” tee-shirt designed just for this occasion. A limited number of tee-shirts will be printed (maximum = 45) and the only way to get one is to donate $100 or more. Each tee-shirt will be numbered and signed. Donate Now
Note: The tee-shirt design will be revealed here on September 1, 2014.
$500 — Your Name or Business Logo on my Race Day Running Shirt
This level represents 10% of my fundraising goal, so in appreciation of your $500 donation, I will run on January 10 wearing an “Imagineering a Cure” tee-shirt displaying your name or business logo. In addition, your name or business logo will also appear on the back of the collectors shirts given to each of the $100 donors. Donate Now
Note: Due to printing requirements, your donation and camera-ready logo artwork must be received no later than August 18, 2014 in order to appear on the “Imagineering a Cure” tee-shirt. Contact me to reserve your spot, or if you have any questions.
$1,000 — All of the Above, Plus a Surprise Disney Gift
Donate $1,000 and you’ll have my eternal gratitude. But I’ll also send you one of each of of the above incentives, plus a surprise gift from Walt Disney World selected just for you. Donate Now
