Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us,--Hebrews 12:1

New Contest! Win a $50 Visa Gift Card!

UPDATE: This contest received no response and was therefore cancelled.

In the last few months, our fundraising efforts haven't been nearly as productive as they were early on. So we've come up with a plan to hopefully rejuvenate them and realize our goals for each of the three charities we support: St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, Arkansas Children's Hospital, and Soaring Wings Christian Home & Ranch.

Starting August 12, 2011, running until 11:59 pm CST of the day we raise $500 for these charities, each donor will be entered in a drawing for a $50 Visa Gift Card. For each dollar donated during this time period, the donor's name will be entered once in the drawing. A $5 donation will enter the donor's name 5 times in the drawing, a $10 donation 10 times, etc.

Now your donations to the charities we support could win you a $50 gift card! So donate now for your chance to win! The more you donate, the more likely it is that YOUR name will be drawn as the lucky winner!

Best of luck!

Contest rules and procedures follow:

  • There are two ways to make eligible donations. All donations made through our fundraising pages (linked in the sidebar of this page and on our Donate page) are eligible. You may also send a check, made out to the charity listed above you are choosing to support, to our address (found on our Contact page).
  • To make sure we're on solid legal ground, there is a way to enter without donating. Send a self-addressed envelope to our address (found on our Contact page) to have your name entered in the drawing, even if you didn't donate.
  • Eligible entries will be those made or received beginning on August 12, 2011 through 11:59 pm CST on the date when accumulated eligible entries reach $500. If you are mailing your donation, mail it soon. If we receive it after the contest ends, it is no longer eligible.
  • An announcement will be made on this site and on our Facebook page 24 hours prior to the drawing and the winner will be announced immediately following the drawing on the same venues.
  • The prize will be mailed the first business day following the drawing if winner's address is known. Otherwise, Running with Amanda will make every reasonable effort to locate the address of winner for one week. In the event winner's address is still not known one week after drawing, a new winner will be drawn.
  • By entering this contest, you are agreeing to have your name posted on this site, on Facebook, and Twitter if you are declared the winner.

We hope this makes things a little more interesting and ignites a new spark in our fundraising campaign. If this contest accomplishes its goals, look for others to follow.

Thanks for joining us and helping us raise money for these worthwhile charities! You can also help by sharing this post to let others know about our contest.

Best of luck and may God richly bless you.
