New Balance 860s Lace Up for the Cure Giveaway

Since our neighborhood was quite the hot spot for trick-or-treaters last year, Ryan and I are well prepared with tons of chocolate to giveaway this evening.

Pumpkin Dog is prepared to keep a close watch to make sure no funny business goes down.

I figured I would make a big pot of soup for lunch that Ryan and I can easily reheat for dinner this evening. We’re thinking about hanging out on our front porch with our candy and a bottle of wine since it’s supposed to be nice and chilly this evening, and I figured soup would be the perfect porch dinner!

I cooked up a batch of Harry & David potato corn chowder using the mix that I bought when I was in Oregon and added a bunch of chicken to the base for a punch of protein.

The soup was incredibly flavorful and satisfying and I’m looking forward to eating it again tonight. Let’s just hope it passes the Soup Hater’s test.

New Balance 860s Lace Up for the Cure Giveaway

Ready to win a new pair of shoes!?

new balance 860

As I’m sure you’ve noticed from the plethora of pink that has popped up this month, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and I have a fun pink-related giveaway for you guys today!

If you’ve been reading this blog for a while now, you know that my mom is a breast cancer survivor.

race for the cure st. petersburg

She was diagnosed with breast cancer in October 2008, underwent surgery (she had a double mastectomy), chemotherapy and radiation and now, with every scan that comes back cancer-free, our family breathes a sigh of relief. We all feel so lucky that my mom found the lump in her breast through self-exam and sought treatment when she did.

When New Balance reached out to me about their Lace Up for the Cure® Collection, I was happy to learn about their pledge to donate 5 percent of the suggested retail price of sales from their Lace Up for the Cure Collection (with a guaranteed minimum donation of $500,000) to Susan G. Komen for the Cure® in 2012.

The Lace Up for the Cure® Collection is available year-round and includes sneakers, zip ups, capris, tees, tank tops and sports bras. My two favorite items from the collection include this quarter-zip lightweight workout jacket that I wore on a hike with Ryan and Sadie last weekend:

lace up for the cure new balance jacket

And these incredibly comfortable and lightweight walking shoes:

Steel gray + pink is always a winning color combination in my book and I love the ruching on the inside of the sneakers. Such a fun, feminine touch!

When New Balance approached me about hosting a giveaway, I asked them if they’d be willing to donate $1 per giveaway entry up to $1,000 to Susan G. Komen for the Cure® and they agreed!

Now you can enter this giveaway to win a pair of New Balance 860s (normally $89.99) and know that your entry is helping to raise money to support Susan G. Komen for the Cure® and their efforts to find a cure for breast cancer through research, community health outreach, advocacy and programs in more than 50 countries.

    It is so wonderful that you asked New Balance to donate $1 for every comment. I am commenting not because I want to win the shoes (although I always love a new pair of workout shoes), but because I think this a wonderful cause. Kudos to you for taking this opportunity to raise money towards breast cancer research. Your mother is a very brave and strong woman thank you for sharing her story!

    Good luck with 1,000 posts! Here, I’ll help! 🙂

    Just yesterday, my mom had a mini celebration of the anniversary of her last Chemo treatment. It’s been four years, now. I’m so proud and happy for her, and so relieved when she gives me good news after her annual doctor visits.

    I was in college at the time, and was able to be with her for her mastectomy surgery, but not through every treatment. Luckily, she always had friends with her to keep her company and to keep her spirits up.

    My dad impressed me so much with how much he took care of her, considering medical stuff makes him squirmy. He took the “In Sickness and In Health” vow VERY seriously. I’m proud of both of them. ♥

    I wish ovarian cancer received as much awareness as breast cancer. It’s a silent killer and there’s only a 10% chance of living 3 years after the diagnosis. My grandmother fought for 3 and a half years after her diagnosis, until she passed away this summer. I got a tattoo of the ovarian cancer ribbon on my back to support her.

    I love the color combo, grey and pink! And it’s so good to hear a breast cancer story with a happy ending! It takes one tough cookie of a woman to get through that!

    My grandmother was diagnosed with Breast Cancer and also underwent surgery to remove both breasts. Unfortunately, we lost her early this year to a different type of cancer.
    I love that New Balance is donating money for every comment! That is awesome. Way to go for working that one out.
