In a couple weeks, Jill from Juneau, Alaska will doing the Iditarod Trail Invitational Race. If you don’t read her blog, you really should. She’s an amazing writer and posts really great pictures.

The race starts Sunday, February 24th, 2008 and uses the course that the dog sled race uses a week later. Jill is doing the 350 mile division of the race that finishes at McGrath. There’s also a 1,100 mile division that goes all the way to Nome. Jill is doing it by bike but some are running or skiing it.

I know first hand that doing a race like this isn’t cheap. I wanted to do something to help Jill out. The traffic to my cycling and outdoor gear search has been steadily increasing. I started it to help me be able to afford to attempt the Race Across America again. I get paid a small commission when someone makes a purchase after clicking through from my site.

Monday and Tuesday of next week I’ll be donating all commissions to Jill’s race fund. If you’ve been considering buying some cycling or outdoor gear, now you can buy it and support an endurance athlete. You can also go to her blog and donate through PayPal.

If you have a blog or website, you can also help out by getting the word out about what I’m doing to help Jill.
