ANOTHER Giveaway Autism Awareness - Headbands by Shellane!

Have you heard of the Headbands Made by Shellane?  You can find her Facebook page here.  I have always been a run with a visor on kinda girl until I met Shellane and her headbands.  They don't budge.  Ever!  I'm not kidding.  I have done speedy 5 mile runs in them.  I did a whole Jazzercise class in them.  They don't move!

I am wearing a sparkly purply silver one!

Headbands by Shellane are not just for running.  They also make a statement.  She makes them for various causes including breast cancer, Epilepsy and for April, Autism.  As you know, April is Autism Awareness Month.  The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found the prevalence of autism to be at 1 out of every 68 births. Further, autism is diagnosed in 1 out of every 54 boys, and the numbers continue to grow.   We all know someone who is close to us diagnosed as being on the spectrum. 

There are several Autism Awareness events in the County including this one on October 19 and this one on April 19.  You can sport your new headband in style like I did in the picture below at the San Diego Race for Autism.

Modeled by Lisa M. and SD Mom

So the lovely Shellane has made 3 different headbands representing Autism Awareness for you lucky readers to win.  Here are the 3 designs.

The 3 stay put designs

But you don't need to take it from me that these are the best headbands ever...here are some real life runners and women who SWEAR by them.

The lovely Tricia L.

Tricia L.: I never once have to adjust it when I go for my long distance runs or even just jumping/dancing around the house. They stay in place and never slip off. I love that Shellane has an array of different colors/patterns to choose from and I have received many compliments from other fellow runners and even strangers.

April B.'s collection

April B.: You can keep your hands free for important things- like holding your little one's hand or high fiving your running buddies after a long run. I bought three after wearing one during the Hot Chocolate 5k.

Melissa O. sporting her favorite at her first Half!

Melissa O.: Since my first purchase, I was hooked and I don't normally wear headbands often. I wore the grey chevron headband during my first half marathon in December (see pic.) They keep my hair out of my face while running, they stay put, and most of all they are comfortable. Other headbands would give me a headache, but not these!  Shellane's headbands come in so many different designs that are fun and personal, like her breast cancer awareness headbands that I've worn proudly as a survivor myself. They are great for everyone....a mommy like me or even my 11-yr-old daughter.

Andrea T. in her fave design!
Andrea T.: They are better then any headbands you purchase at any store because they stay on with out constantly slipping off. Also, I'm a big supporter for many different disease prevention/support programs such as breast awareness, diabetes, and autism. Shellane can customize my headbands for what ever I'm running to support. So know that you are getting an awesome headband that stays in place while you pound on the concrete whether it's to support your cause or to style it up;)

Cristina W. supporting her favorite team!

Cristina W.: Not only are Shellane's headbands great for running, they stayed put on my head while I tailgated from 9 am to 6 pm! Oh, and did I mention I was the crazy Charger fan jumping up and down when we beat the Chiefs to go to the playoffs?!

  1. The cause that is nearest and dearest to my heart is Alzheimer's. My grandmother died from the disease and it was just heartbreaking to see her disappear LONG before she was actually gone. I can't even imagine how difficult it was to lose pieces of herself over years and years. :-( Also, Alzheimer's can be hereditary and it affects far more women than men, so that doesn't bode well for me or my Mom and sister either...or my own children down the line. I'm hopeful that they can continue to find ways to slow it, and eventually cure it once and for all!

    1. Thank you for sharing that...this is so sad.

  2. The cause nearest to my heart is autism awareness. Last year we got the diagnosis that my youngest son had autism. At first it was extremely scary cause i had very little information about what it would mean for his future. Today i could not be prouder of my son he has come such a long way with therapy and teaching to how he learns. His future is bright and I can't wait to see what God has in store for my baby.

    1. May God bless your whole family! Thank you for sharing your story!

  3. The cause nearest my heart is Cerebral Palsy.
