About This Activity

BlingRunners LLC is giving you a chance to win this amazing automobile.    This beautiful 444HP, 2013 Boss 302 Mustang is #774 of the 4,000 that were manufactured.       Nobody disputes the 2013 Ford Mustang Boss 302 is a rollicking example of contemporary muscle car-ness at its best. Get one while you can, though, because the Boss 302 as we know it is finished.    Ford quickly reached a self-imposed 4,000-unit production limit of 2013 Boss 302s early in 2013, marking the end of the Boss 302's run in the current-generation Mustang body style.   Since its introduction in 2012, the Boss 302's rev-happy 444-horsepower 5.0-liter V8 and manageable size have made it a popular and desirable package for the Mustang. The original Boss 302 was manufactured in 1969-'70 to aid hopped-up Mustangs to better compete in the Trans-Am racing series.   With an intoxicating quad-cam 5.0-liter V8 and limited-edition numbers, the Boss 302 could never be judged a bad investment.   This Boss has 30,000 miles on it and is in mint condition.   It has been garaged by the original since new!   Tracy and Kim Hussey are giving up their Boss to help this great cause.  It will be given away after 600 entries are sold!   We will not sell more than 1,000 entries.
It is being raffled off to raise money for the Florida Gulf Coast Alzheimer's Association, along with the running of the Inaugural Myakka River half Marathon.     At BlingRunners we are very passionate about helping to find a cure for this atrocious decease. On April 1, 2015 Kimberly Hussey, co-owner of BlingRunners LLC, lost her mother to Alzheimer’s. She was only 68 years old.  Blingrunners, LLC is also pleased to announce the Inaugural Myakka River Half Marathon, to be held in the beautiful Myakka River State Park in Sarasota, Florida on November 21, 2015.       This beautiful course runs through the park all on paved roads under tree canopies, along the shores of Myakka Lake. This is Real Florida. This course will be USATF Certified. There will be a great after party and lots of perks! This race and the Boss raffle, will benefit the Alzheimer’s Association – Florida Gulf Coast.    With your entry fee or donation you will be helping fund the research to find a cure. The Alzheimer’s Association truly feels that they are within 10 years of finding a cure.  We are hosting the event in loving memory of Kim’s mom.
