Leah Thorvilson is a popular and talented marathoner that recently took part in my Marathon Mastermind. She’s an elite marathoner out of Arkansas that is currently training for the Olympic Trials in January. She isn’t afraid to run (and win) multiple marathons or ultramarathons each year, and she’s willing to have fun doing it, even running in costume at times.
Tonight, she’s helping to raise money for the Children’s Tumor Foundation through the Red Carpet for Research: Dancing with Our Stars event. Leah will be paired with a professional dancer from Arthur Murray’s Dance Studio and will compete in a dance competition against 5 other dancers.
Part of the competition is through fund raising and if you want to help Leah win, you can go directly to the donation page where she’ll get 1 vote for every $10 that she raises. Just be sure to choose Leah’s name from the list of dancers!
Alternatively, I will donate $20 for every sale of the Marathon Mastermind today through 11:30 a.m. Eastern Time.
I think that voting ends at noon and while that’s probably noon central I’ll be making my donation between 11:30 and 11:45 Eastern to make sure it’s in on time.
So, if you’d like to listen to Leah and the other 10 guest coaches in the Marathon Mastermind, you can pick it up by filling in your information below and I will donate $20 on your behalf from the purchase price to the Children’s Tumor Fund to vote for Leah:
I will donate $20 from any purchases made on Thursday, September 15, 2011 before 11:30 a.m. EDT towards the Children’s Tumor Foundation to vote for Leah in the dance competition. For purchases that are made for the rest of the day after that, I will donate the $20 towards Leah’s next month fund-raiser for Race for the Cure, as this is short notice and some of you may not see this post in time. So…any purchases made today (Thursday) will result in most of the purchase price going towards a good cause.
