Pura Vida!

Pura Vida is the Spanish phrase meaning ‘Pure Life” and it is the law of the land in beautiful Costa Rica. Why does this matter?

It matters because OM MileMaker supporter, Francoise Leonard of New Mexico is the recipient of the two week stay at Mot Mot Manor in the wonderful gated community of Roma del Mar!

Congratulations Francoise!

All MileMaker supporters had their names entered into a thank you prize draw, which was held on March 31st. In fact anyone that sponsored a mile, had 4 entries in the draw (for each mile), those that sponsored a half mile had 2 entries and 1/4 mile supporters had their names entered once.

Francoise will enjoy two weeks in the comfort of a private 3 bedroom/3 bath home overlooking the Nicoyan Peninsula. She can spend leisurely time in the in-ground pool, explore the many beaches and nature trails, and Howler monkeys will serenade her each morning with their raucous calls that echo through the neighborhood.

Coincidentally, the recipient of the 2012 Costa Rican trip is enjoying herself at Mot Mot Manor right now!

If you would like to have your name entered into the thank you prize draw for 2014 please help support the MileMaker 2014 campaign. The cost remains unchanged from last year, which means the cost of a mile is $200, a 1/2 mile is $100 and a 1/4 mile is $50. Your support helps to fund the southward migration this coming fall for the Class of 2014 Whooping cranes.
