The UCF provides support programs, education and resources, free of charge, to young adults, their families and friends, who are affected by cancer. The Ulman Cancer Fund is the primary support through funding behind Cancer to 5k, a program very close to my heart. Created by my beautiful sister Holly Shoemaker, Cancer to 5k is a training program designed to introduce and/or reintroduce cancer survivors to physical activity by providing them with the training program, coaches, encouragement and support necessary to complete a 5K. Again, this is provided FREE OF CHARGE to all participants! To continue providing these awesome programs, The Ulman Fund needs your support.
While sitting around avoiding studying for finals, I came up with the idea to host an online raffle of sorts to benefit the UCF. I contacted a bunch of companies, hoping to hear back from a few. And well, the results were overwhelming. Help poured in, and before I knew it, I had enough donations to put together multiple, awesome raffles. A HUGE thank you for all of your help!!
The first one will be geared towards running moms, because after all , this is “Run Faster Mommy!” and I hold a special place in my heart for all of you baby/toddler/teen/grandchild wrangling speedsters! Of course, this is also open to anyone who knows a special running lady in their life (or really likes pink, haha).
Without further ado…the goods! The winner of this raffle will receive ALL of the following:
$31.50 gift card to Road I.D.
If you don’t have a Road I.D. product, you NEED to get one. Hopefully you will never have to use it, but it is a safety precaution that every runner/cyclist should take. The gift certificate allows you to choose from a variety of products (shoe ID, wrist ID, ankle ID, etc) and customize your personal information. Already have an I.D.? Then check out some of the neat accessories and apparel available!
run u mother reflective running hat
I LOVE this company and everything it stands for, and I’m so glad they were able to help out with this raffle! About the hat:
The light weight dry wick material and breathable side vents let the air in and the sweat band under the cap keeps moisture away from your eyes. The reflective tape at the back closure and around the bill ensure you’ll be visible after dark.
36 GU ENERGY gel packs
6 of each of the following flavors:
“Simple to take, simple to digest, GU Energy Gel provides just what you need for premium exercise fuel and none of the extras that slow you down. GU takes you where you want to go, fast.
Launched in 1991, the world’s first energy gel is still the most efficient sports fuel available today. GU’s carbohydrate blend delivers high-quality, easily-digested and long-lasting energy for athletes in every sport and at all levels.”
I am a HUGE advocate of the recovery sock. I don’t own this particular brand, but I know many people who do and love them as much as I love mine! In this giveaway you will receive a pair of the Recovery socks. Shown are Pink size small women’s 6.5-8.5/mens 5-7.5) but I will switch them out for the Silver size Medium (women’s 9-11/men’s 8-10)if you prefer. Also a pair of VitalSox (a low cut gradual compression sock) in your choice of size S,M, or L. (color varies depending on size, the S and L are white instead of black)Lastly, a Recovery sock sweatband!

small, fitting shoe size W 7-9 or M6-8
Halo II pullover headband (in pink of course!)
3 packs of Honey Stinger energy chews
I’ll probably keep these people in business with my own nutritional needs, haha! I’ve been using these since AFTER my last marathon, and I’ve yet to have a *single* stomach cramp with them. What’s more, they aren’t as hard/chewy as some other chews, so they are easier for me to take on the run
