Tutu’s for a Cause

Awhile back, Lesley contacted me and told me she was raising money for Girls on the Run. I just happen to LOVE Girls on the Run. When I ran the Rouge Orleans relay race a couple years ago, our team raised money for them and they were just so sweet and thankful. Well, Lesley had the great idea that not only could runners get the satisfaction of giving money to charity, but they could get a really fun product in the process!

-Between now and October 6th, she will be selling adorable running tutu’s for $20 and 100% of that will go to Girls on the Run. Shipping is included in the USA. Shipping is $5 outside of the USA.

-To purchase you just need to send her an e-mail at [email protected] From there you will discuss your custom design and how to pay.

-All tutu skirts and headbands are made completely by hand-no sewing machines. Therefore, each piece is unique!

Who is running runDisney’s Tower of Terror (villain anyone?), Wine and Dine, marathon weekend races, Tinkerbell, or Princess races? There are so many events coming up, so getting a CUSTOM handmade tutu for $20 including shipping is an AMAZING offer. Lesley is super creative and can help you come up with a design of your choosing. I just so happened to want to be a villain for he Tower of Terror….so Lesley made me this amazing Cruella de Vil tutu for me. I love it!

I have some other outfit “components” but I want them to be a surprise so you will just have to wait and see. A huge thanks to Lesley for making this for me, and I do hope you will choose to support Girls on the Run with Lesley!

QOTD: What character would you have a tutu made after for a race?

  1. You tutu is ADORABLE! I can’t wait to see the rest of your costume!

    I’m running the 10k and half during marathon weekend. I’ve already decided that I have to be Minnie for the 10k, but would love to dress up as Belle, my favorite Disney princess, for the half. My only concern with a tutu is that it will rub my arms raw if they brush up against the tutu during the race (I’m assuming you’re wearing shorts underneath to prevent chafing). Do you have any tips or suggestions to prevent this, or do you not find this to be a major problem?

  2. Heather, I also wanted to thank you for your inspiration in my running journey. I was recently nominated for the Shine On Award, and this morning nominated you.

  3. What a fantastic cause and such a fun way to contribute! I would have such a hard time narrowing down a character!! I would want all the princesses! 🙂

  4. Super cute!!! I LOVE the hidden mickey on the back!!! I’ve got to start thinking about my costumes for marathon weekend! Love that these support Girls on the Run…such an amazing organization!

  5. I love the tutu and you always look so amazing. Malificient is what I’m thinking of for a tutu! 🙂

  6. Thanks so much for sharing this, Heather! Several of the girls that I coach with Girls on the Run are participating because they are able to use some of the fundraising money. I know as a fact that every dollar raised goes to help pay for a girl to participate. I appreciate the support that I have received from everyone and I am so glad that you and your readers love the tutu! Can’t wait to see you rock it at the ToT in a few weeks!

  7. I am looking for an Ursula the sea witch tutu for the half marathon on marathon weekend. I’m running for the third time with Team in Training, and am hoping to do a “cancer is worse than a sea witch” theme. Love the idea of supporting a great cause for another great cause!

  8. I don’t even know where to begin in picking out my costumes! There are just so many great choices! I will need to get a tutu though for Tinkerbell!

  9. How cute is your tutu! I think I’ll have to get one too- I mean it is for a good cause. The question is what character I should pick??

  10. I wish I had seen this earlier! I wanted a Cruella tutu just like yours, but the ones I found on etsy were too expensive. Already ordered my rockcity skirt for it :-\ I’ll have to think of a different costume I can get one of these for!

  1. […] in September, Heather from Through Heather’s Looking Glass shared her costume for the Tower of Terror 10 Miler, the centerpiece of which was a tutu.  I immediately fell in love with Heather’s tutu, and […]
