Headband fundraiser

Hey there blog readers-

If you have been keeping track at home you know that I make head bands.  If not read this!

I have been fortunate to work with a few local groups with fundraising opportunities. Most recently the West Branch Schools and the Bear Stampede, where I donated half of my “expo” sales back to the organization. I have also worked with my friends who fund raise for the University of Iowa Children’s Hospital through the Iowa Ladies Football Academy, where an entire day of sales go to the cause.

That is when I came across a new idea. My social media friend, Paul – who I have met in real life at a marathon, came to me asking if I could help with his fundraising to run the New York Marathon for the James Blake foundation. I tweeted and even blogged about his cause, check it out here!

I suggested maybe I make a head band pattern or 2 with proceeds going to his fundraising efforts. He was on board, so he picked 2 fun summer patterns.


I have these available in all 3 sizes I make. Questions/concerns let me know. If you want a group order, please allow 2 weeks.

A donation of at least $10 will get you a head band. What are you waiting for donate today! Please contact either of us.

Or you can purchase head bands locally at these various locations:

  • the Staker Health Center in West Branch, IA
  • West Branch Farmer’s Markets on Tuesdays
  • North Liberty Farmer’s Markets on Sundays
  • The Marion Rotary Run for Shoes Marathon Expo June 13, 2015

I created an 2 etsy listings, there are additional pictures here too.

chevron pattern.

Stars design. The price is different, but you have to pay for shipping. It may be easier to make a direct donation. (but who doesn’t like options?!?)

  1. Thanks so much for helping out, and spreading the word for this great charity.

  2. Reblogged this on Running Wild and commented:
    Wanted to share with you today a blog post by my running buddy Angie! Angie and I met at the Blue Ridge Marathon in Virginia in 2013. A super cool, and hugely enthusiastic runner of all kinds of races, Angie is a social media butterfly. She is a BibRavePro, a RunBassador on Twitter, blogs, fundraises, and has her own headband business. Angie was kind enough to offer up her time and energy to help me fundraise for the James Blake Foundation, a charity working hard and making impacts on the lives of cancer patients by pushing research finds faster to the patients that need it most. Please give her blog a read, she has many race experiences to share with her readers. We are offering a free headband from a few styles we came up with for any donation $10 and up to my charity. (Links included in her blog post). Angie lives in Iowa, and her headbands can also be found at local race expos and running stores. She is donating half of the proceeds from the sales of the “Stars” and “Red and Blue Chevron” patterns to my charity at these locations as well. Thank you Angie! Let’s get together at the Chicago Marathon again this year, and we can both wear the Chevron headband for charity!
