As some of you may know, I recently completed a 10K with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's TNT PLUS team. 

What you may not know is that I'm currently training for my next half marathon - the inaugural Rock 'n' Roll Brooklyn Half on Saturday, October 10th. This will be my 9th half marathon since September 2011. Once that's done, I'll once again be putting my legs to work - walking another 5 miles in the annual Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk, on Sunday, October 18th.

What does any of this have to do with the color of my hair? As part of my efforts to promote awareness and raise some needed funds, I will be dyeing my hair in one of two colors - hot pink for Making Strides or bright purple for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society- until both events are over. The choice is yours.

Whichever charity raises the most money between now and August 15th will be the winner. My hair will then be professionally dyed in the winning color by September 1st.* (The last time I did something like this, I promised I'd get a taco tattooed on my left ankle. Feel free to stop by my desk anytime to check and see if I made good on my word:-)

If you want me to color my hair HOT PINK, all you need do is make a donation of any amount here:

If you want me to color my hair PURPLE, you can vote by making a donation here:

Thanks so much for your help and support during my training season:-)

*Note: In the event of a tie, I may have to get creative and go with 2 colors.
