Team For Kids NYC Marathon Charity Auction- BIDDING IS CLOSED!!

As you know, I'm running the NYC Marathon, on November 1st, as a member of Team For Kids. In order to do that I need to raise $2620. To read more about Team For Kids you can check out my first post HERE. In January, Running Bun had a great idea to do an online auction for the NYC Half. I turned to her for some advice and then decided to do my own auction!

100% of the auction proceeds will benefit Team For Kids. The funds they raise provide free or low-cost health and fitness programs to kids who would otherwise have little or no access to regular physical activity. 

I'd like to thank everyone who donated an item and reached out to contacts to help with donations.  I'm excited to see how much money we can raise for Team For Kids.


1. SCROLL through items and pick your favourite(s.)
2. VERIFY to see if the item is available to be shipped to your area (some items are just for        Canadians/Local to Lethbridge/US residents.)
3. BID HERE  (by sending me a message)
4. CHECK BACK: I'll be updating the bids as they come in. Check back, often, to see if you've been outbid.
5. PAY: Winners will be emailed when the auction closes April 30th. You'll have one week to make the donation to my Team For Kids participate page (in the amount of your winning bid.) Upon payment, your item will be shipped. Please note, the Team For Kids website is US based so the donations are done is USD.
When making a bid, please include the NAME of the item and corresponding NUMBER.
