Mardi Gras Give Away

Love Mardi Gras and free stuff? 
I sure do.

Look at all the good stuff you could win. 

My first half-marathon this year will be the Mardi Gras half with Team in Training. I'm almost at my fundraising goal for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. I would love to go above and beyond the minium.

All of us on Team In Training are raising funds to help stop leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin lymphoma and myeloma from taking more lives. I am completing this event in honor Faron Benoit. Faron is a typical 14yr old. He loves video games but is fighting Hodgkins Lymphoma.

I thought it would be fun for my non-New Orleans bloggie friends to get to experience a little Mardi Gras fun. And it's a good way for New Orleans friends to kick off the season. 

This is my first give away so have patience with any hiccups. So, what will you win?

Thanks for the comment on my blog!
Don't you just love Mardi Gras time. My dad gets me a pecan praline king cake from Ambrosia's in Baton Rouge every year and it is so sinful but wonderful!

OH OH OH!!! You just made me SUPER excited for Mardi Gras. My sister in law was the #2 woman overall in last year's Mardi Gras marathon and next year I hope to run the Mardi Gras half (it will be near my 30th bday). Actually I was on my way to Mardi Gras 2009 last year when I was in a car wreck that broke my leg and ended my 2009 half marathon training. But I STILL made it and was the girl on crutches at Lee Circle for Endymion and on St Charles for the daytime parades. Hardcore, right? My brother lives a few blocks from St Charles and has invited me back this year (with the stipulation I can't break my leg). CAN'T WAIT! (I'm actually eating jambalaya for lunch right now) LOVE this giveaway...LOVE NOLA! :)
