About 5 years ago a bunch of members at Olive Branch CrossFit got together and bought me this watch for my 40th birthday. That was the year that “Big Thirsty” and I ran 40 miles for our 40th birthdays. It was a big time. That moment was very special to me and I will always look back on it and remember how awesome it felt to have such an incredible gift given to me like that.
I’ve decided that it’s time for me to upgrade to a new watch, and that I wanted to do something special with it instead of just trying to sell it for a little bit of cash. I am running the St. Jude “Virtual” Marathon in December and I have committed to raising $3000.00 as a St. Jude Hero. I thought that it would be fun to raffle this watch off and give it to the winner. Here’s how this is going to work:
From now until August 31st I’m going to take $10 dollar donations to St. Jude, and put all the names of the people who make those donations into a hat and on September 1st I will draw someone’s name out of a hat and I will send the watch to that person.
You can make a donation by clicking the button below!
Rules (sort of) Multiple donations will count. So for every $10.00 you donate your name will go into the hat that many times. So if you donate $30.00 I will put your name in the hat 3 times. When you make your donation, you will have the opportunity to add a “personal note” before you hit the donate button. Please put in that personal note that you are sending the donation for the LHRL watch. On September 1st I will post a video of us drawing the winner’s name and I will either bring the watch to you or ship it to you. I thought this would be a good way for someone who wouldn’t normally be able to afford an expensive running watch to be able to have one to use and we could raise money as well.
That’s pretty much it, now GO DONATE!
