great raffle for a great cause

From a fellow IF racer and blogger...

If you’ve been reading my [Two Wheeled Locust] blog for awhile, you may recall that my girlfriend Samantha is an ovarian cancer survivor. She has been in remission for close to two years and is doing quite well.

Over the past year, Samantha has been raising money for ovarian cancer research through the HERA Foundation. Her latest fundraising efforts involve a partnership with the promoters of the Escape from Granouge MTB race in northern Delaware on May 20th. (Race details are here). Props are due to the race promoters (in particular, Fatmarc) for agreeing to donate a portion of the race entry fees to the HERA Foundation. The attached press release has some additional information about the event and fundraiser.

We will also be conducting a prize raffle at the race. The grand prize is a custom Independent Fabrication rigid fork. There are plenty of other great prizes as well, including an entry to the Stoopid 50 race in State College on June 10th, Hoss riding gear, Solo24 DVDs, and a pair of Maxxis Ignitor 29er tires. Chances are $5.00 each and 100% of the proceeds will be donated to HERA.

Raffle tickets are available in advance through BikeReg here. And of course, we will be selling tickets at the event throughout the day. You do not need to be present at the event to win.

I’d appreciate it if you could help spread the work by posting something on your blog. If you have any questions/comments/feedback, please let me know.

Many thanks,
