48 Hour Fundraiser
Sep 21, 2012 by Kelly Bonatsakis

Saturday morning I am running my longest run to date and my longest run before the Nike half-marathon. In honor of that I am holding a fundraiser, the catch? It is for 48 hours ONLY.



I am in the final push to raise money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society through my Team In Training efforts. I have FOUR great gift packages. For every $13.10 donation you will receive one entry in to the raffle.


First, donate here! Again, $13.10 gets you one entry, for each additional $13.10 you receive another entry. Example $50 = 3 Entries.


Let me tell you a little about where your money goes before I tell you about the great prizes.


✷76.2% of all funds go to research projects, grants, financial assistance to patients, producing educational material and videos and run support groups.


✷$25 provides patients and their loved ones with FREE booklets that contain up-to-date information on their disease and help them make informed decisions about their treatment options.


✷$50 makes possible a Family Support group with a trained facilitator where comfort can be found and experiences can be shared among patients and family members.


✷$100 helps supply laboratory researchers with supplies and materials critical to carrying out their search for cures.


✷$500 could provide patient aid to THREE patients with Leukemia or a related cancer for a year.


✷$1,000 makes possible one-on-one conversations with health care specialists who provide patients with information about their disease, treatment options, and helps prepare them with questions for their health care team.

Fundraising Party
Sep 13, 2012 by Kelly Bonatsakis

September is Blood Cancer Awareness Month. There is no better time than now to donate to The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s (LLS). Your donation will help find cures and better treatments for leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma. There are still children and adults who are not surviving blood cancer, because they do not have the finances or resources, and I am trying to provide them with that.


Along with one of my teammates from Team In Training, we are hosting a fundraising party at The Greatest Bar (Friend Street) in Boston and you are invited. We have been training with TNT and raising money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Help us raise money to beat cancer and have fun while doing it! This is something you can be a part of even if you are NOT local to Boston.


just after our first 10 miler!


$10 at the door (includes 2 raffle tickets), a fun TNT drink and a raffle. All proceeds go to Team In Training Fundraising. You will be able to buy additional raffle tickets at the event, $5 for 1 and $10 for 3.


Raffle prizes so far include:

  • Gift Card to any Legal Seafoods Restaurant
  • A Lululemon Outfit
  • SparklySoul Headbands
  • Nuun
  • Gift Card to The Cheesecake Factory
  • Voucher for a dinner for TWO at Texas Roadhouse
  • THREE gift cards to Johnny Cupcakes
  • THREE runner goodie bags - which includes fuel (gu, carbboom, nuun, etc…), laces, head gear, hand held water bottles and more!

Cake pops & cupcakes for a donation!


Bring your friends and have a fun Saturday night while benefitting a great cause!


Here is where it gets fun, if you are local, we would love to have you join us. If you are not local you can buy raffle tickets, all you need to do is email me at cupcakekelly21@gmail.com with the subject TNT fundraiser.


Or if you would just like to donate, you can do that here. Every donation from here until the race is going to get a dedicated mile on the race. There will also be another giveaway with three prizes including Lululemon and Starbucks, that anyone who donates online from here until September 28 is eligible for.



I appreciate all your support on my journey to becoming a half-marathoner!

Sparkly Soul Fundraiser Giveaway Winner!
Aug 24, 2012 by Kelly Bonatsakis

Hey All!


I know it should have been done weeks ago but I finally vlogged the winner of the SparklySoul giveaway. Thank you everyone who purchased a headband!


I know I have talked a lot about my fundraising but I haven't given you any facts, so before we get to the fun stuff here is some serious stuff.


The Facts:


  • Approximately every four minutes, someone new is diagnosed with blood cancer. Approximately every 10 minutes, someone dies.

  • Leukemia causes more deaths than any other cancer among children, adolescents and young adults under the age of 20.

  • Lymphomas are the most common blood cancers and incidence increases with age. The survival rate for myeloma is only 41.1%.

  • The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society has invested more than $814 million in research aimed at helping all blood cancer patients live better, longer lives.

If you would like to make a donation(and any donation is going to be considered in the next giveaway (it's a good one involving lululemon) Every penny counts and I appreciate all donations.


  • A donation of $25 provides patients and their loved ones with FREE booklets that contain up-to-date information on their disease and help them make informed decisions about their treatment options.

  • A donation of $50 makes possible a Family Support group with a trained facilitator where comfort can be found and experiences can be shared among patients and family members.
