Here’s WHY you should enter the contest:

  • First and foremost, BoMF is a great organization. They are taking running to a new level and transforming lives in the process. I believe strongly in this cause and donating to BoMF is truly a way to enable and empower positive change through the sport we all love so much. From the BoMF website:

“The organization’s mission is not to create runners within the homeless population, but to use running to create self-sufficiency in the lives of those experiencing homelessness. The program’s success is measured by how many Members obtaining independence through employment, job training and housing.”

  • Two great races to choose from if you win:

In24 RacesMidnight Madness (8.4 miles and a $65 value): “For the mid-distance runner looking for something truly unique, run through Fairmount Park like never before at The 2014 Stroehmann Back on My Feet in24 Midnight Madness! Light the path for the Ultra-Runners and Relay teams in Philadelphia’s only glow-in-the-dark run, which takes place on Sunday, July 20, at midnight. Midnight Madness runners will race the 8.4-mile loop around Philadelphia’s Schuylkill River.”

A perfect race for the novice runner to the most seasoned runner looking to test their speed, the Finale 5K is not a race to miss.

Disclosure: I am fundraising for BoMF Philly for the Philadelphia Marathon. I paid my own entry into the Philadelphia Marathon and volunteered to fundraise because I strongly believe in BoMF. BoMF provided me with one complimentary entry into either the #in24 Midnight Madness or Finale 5K and also provided me with one complimentary entry to give away in this contest to promote my blog. I plan to keep blogging about running and to stay involved with supporting BoMF in the future!
