Fiber 5K to Fight Cancer

I used to love to run,  even completed several half marathons, but my running days are over.

However, here is a way to compete in a 5K from the comfort of my chair, with all proceeds going to fight cancer. Just by participating puts you in the “running” for some really great prizes.

Mark your calendar for January 15, 2014 and join me in the fun as Fiberart For A Cause’s virtual race, Fiber 5K,  kicks off with a goal of raising $5000 for the American Cancer Society.

Generous Prize Sponsors for drawings means there will be many winners at the 1K ($1000) mark, 2K ($2000) mark, etc., plus a Grand Prize drawing when we cross the Finish Line. Check out this link to the goodies you could win!

As part of The Printed Fabric Bee giveaway, I have donated these two pieces.

According to Virginia Spiegel, race director, “Fiberart For A Cause likes to have fun while raising money to fight cancer, so there are going to be more “race” details revealed as January 15 draws closer. All donations are given directly to the American Cancer Society through Fiberart For A Cause. Fiberart For A Cause has already donated more than $230,000 to the American Cancer Society thanks to the generosity of fiber artists and patrons.”
