New York City Marathon Fundraising – Treadmill

Congratulations to Kristen Wynn of Boulder, Colo.! She’s the winner of the Precor treadmill.

Many thanks to all that participated in our raffle. We appreciate your generosity.

Just in time for winter, Precor® has donated a TRM 823 treadmill ($7,500 retail value) to be raffled off in support of my New York City Marathon fundraising efforts. All proceeds from the raffle will go directly to First Descents, a nonprofit helping young adult cancer fighters and survivors experience outdoor adventures designed to enable them to climb, paddle and surf beyond their diagnosis, defy their cancer and reclaim their lives.

For every $10 donation to First Descents made here, your name will be entered one (1) time in the raffle for the TRM 823 treadmill! Increase your chances to win by contributing $40 and receive five (5) entries into the raffle. A winning name will be drawn from the donation pool on Thursday, October 6, 2011.
