Running Dumbo Double Dare For A Cause

With race season amongst us there are so many reasons to run. Some do it for their health, some do it for their sanity (lol), and others do it for the causes.
So many of my friends have run for different world wide charities such as Leukemia or Cancer. While others have support their local schools or organizations.

I'm sharing this guest spot to help a friend of mine, Boris Blazevic, raise money for an organization called "Back on My Feet" that helps homeless victims turn their life around through the healthy rehabilitation of running.

Back on My Feet (BoMF) is a national, for-purpose 501(c)3 organization that uses running to help those experiencing homelessness change the way they see themselves so they can make real change that results in employment and independent living. To read more about it and see how it works go ahead and click on the link http://la.backonmyfeet.org/mission-process , the Impact it has made http://la.backonmyfeet.org/national-impact and how it got started http://la.backonmyfeet.org/timeline .

Over a period of 2 days on Sept 5 and 6, 2015,  he will be running in the runDisney Double Dare Challenge. On Saturday there will be a 10k and on Sunday the 10th anniversary of the Disneyland Half Marathon in Disneyland, California. Over 2 days a total of 19.3 miles will be traveled running thanks to this opportunity  through this charity after the race was sold out.
In in the spirit of giving back to this charity Boris would like to ask your help as he raises money for this great charity. Let's help him meet his goal of $1200.. maybe even exceed it!

Note from Boris:

Hi Everyone, 

So its my honour to run for a great cause this year at the Disneyland Half Marathon in Sept. Many of you know that I spend a lot of time in the LA area and want to give back. Everyone deserves a second chance so please give.


To help him get started I would like to share this giveaway to anyone who donates $20 or more on his fundraising webpage. Check back and see who won after each week. You will be notified as soon as each weeks raffle is over.
