Hey there hive! I wanted to share this great experience with you.
I, like many brides, found a fabulous dress and of course…it’s over budget. One of the girls at my work encouraged me to do some type of fundraiser for my dress. I decided to do a run-a-thon type of event, over the course of 7 days. I ran as many miles as I could and people pledged any dollar amount to my run-a-thon (I called it “Treading for Threading”.) My goal was to run 20 miles during that week.
I got big and small donations, ranging from 1 cent a mile to $4 a mile but they all helped, and everyone encouraged me.
Well, I am proud to say I completed the 20 miles! and I lost a couple of pounds…plus I raised $380.05 for me dress!! I am so overwhelmed with people’s generosity, plus I feel good about accomplishing a great run.
If you are on a budget I def recommend doing this!
