Cupcake Classic virtual race winners!

Thank you so much for participating in The Cupcake Classic 3.7 virtual race!  You all made me feel so special by your nice messages and photos during my birthday week.  Furthermore, your generous donations put me over the top in my fundraising efforts for the American Cancer Society, raising $670.00 for my DetermiNation team.  (Help me top it off at $700 by donating here.)

Most of all, I just love to see women uniting under the fitness umbrella, running together and having fun.  I think we achieved that!  Over 100 women participated in the virtual run and agreed... "I WILL RUN FOR CUPCAKES!!"  Although some have better will power than me and choose a healthy muffin!

It fills me with glee when you bring the "gang" together for a run...

Happy to see the official Cupcake shirts look so good on you!
Shirt proceeds were donated to the American Cancer Society.

And of course I like special birthday signs made just for me!

I was blown away by the unique 3.7 route that Lauren designed to run!
Is that cool or what?!?!


And now for the Prize Winners...
In true birthday fashion, your prize will come as a wrapped present.
So you'll have to wait until you open it to find out what it is!  :)
