Running for Boobs

Running for BoobsIf you follow me on Twitter (which you should) or are my friend on Facebook, you’ll notice I’ve been doing a lot of running this week. Well get used to it, because I’m participating in the Affiliate Summit East 2010 Nike+ Challenge, where Affiliate Summit will donate $1 to the Avon Breast Cancer Crusade for each mile run (up to $5,000).

This actually works out perfectly for me. First, I’ve been meaning to run more, and now I have a reason to. Second, if you put a challenge in front of me, I’ll probably take it (except for the Ole 96er – I will not participate in eating contests anymore).

Finally, there’s been too much breast cancer in my family, especially lately, so anything I can do to help raise funds for awareness, access to care and finding a cure, I’ll be sure to help.

My goal is to run 250 miles over the 24-week period. While outside, I’ll be using my Garmin Forerunner for accurate recording (then converting the Garmin tcx file and uploading it to the Nike Running site) and while inside (treadmill running), I’ll be using the Nike+ kit.

In addition to Affiliate Summit’s donation on my behalf, I’ll be donating $1 for every mile I run to Roswell Park here in Buffalo. Roswell Park is America’s first cancer center, founded in 1898. The people at Roswell Park do great things for their patients and are focused on their mission to understand, prevent and cure cancer.

Your encouragement is greatly appreciated! There will be plenty of days I don’t want to run, and my running buddies have already been a great help this week. 🙂

Just Fun

    This is along the affiliate vein, but I just got news that the domain is for sale. $1xx,xxx,xxx price. It would be pretty out-of-the-box thinking for a charity to make a move like this, but I bet if they devoted some of their marketing budget to this and built a fun and informational site it would kick this worthy cause to the next level!
