As I pack up all my gear to head to Arizona tomorrow, I want to pause for a moment and acknowledge all of my Smile Train Team Empower supporters and fundraising raffle winners.
As of now, we have raised $9,070.00 for Smile Train, which will provide 36 (and 1/4 more) kiddos with new smiles and new leases on life.
This is so freaking amazing, people! You helped me nearly double my original goal.
You have no idea how much this fills my heart. We are changing 36 lives FOREVER. These kids will now be able to eat, drink, and speak properly, and they’ll be able to go to school and go on to live happy and productive lives. You are making what would have been very difficult lives much brighter.
Small gestures really can make big difference, especially when we join forces. This is proof.
Now….without further ado…drum roll please…
The winner of the raffle for the $50 Jane restaurant gift certificate and bottle of wine is….LORI ONISHUK.
The winner of the $25 Amazon gift card for those who donated between $100-$249 is…ERNESTO PAREDES
The winners of the $100 Amazon gift card for those who donated $250 or more are…JOE & MARIA FAZIO.
Thank you to EVERYBODY who contributed to my fundraising efforts so far. I will be carrying all your good wishes and awesomeness with me on race day…

Okay, awesome peeps, it’s back to packing for me. I head out early tomorrow (woohooo!!!) and will be posting on Facebook and Twitter when I can. I’ll be blogging (if the stars are aligned), but no promises…at least until I’m across the finish line. My main focus will be to be in the moment and soak it all up while I’m there.
Until next time…
With love, hugs, and heaps of gratitude,
xo Your Soon-To-Be Iron(Wo)man Becky
