Fiber 5K to Fight Cancer
Mark your calendar for January 15, 2014 and join me as I run the Fiber 5K to Fight Cancer. OK, I won't actually be jogging around a race course, although I'm sure there would be people willing spend money to see that! Hahaha Not really, but I will be joining the fun as Fiberart For A Cause's virtual race kicks off with a goal of donating $5000 directly to the American Cancer Society.
I have donated this ice dyed and surface designed fat quarter to the cause:
This fat quarter is being added to 9 other fat quarters from my fellow designers of The Printed Fabric Bee. It will be a Bee-u-tiful prize! (sorry about the bad pun!)
There are LOTS of other fantastic prizes from many generous prize sponsors for drawings at the 1K ($1000) mark, 2K ($2000) mark, etc., plus a Grand Prize drawing when we cross the Finish Line.
According to Race Director, Virginia Spiegel, "Fiberart For A Cause likes to have fun while raising money to fight cancer, so, of course, there are going to be more "race" details revealed as January 15 draws closer. 100% of donations are given directly to the American Cancer Society through Fiberart For A Cause. Fiberart For A Cause has already donated more than $230,000 to the American Cancer Society thanks to the generosity of fiber artists and patrons."
