I started fundraising for Team Livestrong two years ago at the Austin half marathon. It was a time when I hit the limit of frustration over the amount of people I saw in my life who were wasting their time and energy fighting cancer. Three years later, I will be doing my first full marathon, but Team Livestrong, unfortunately is not a part of it. Therefore, I am doing my once a year, annual fundraiser for Team Livestrong as part of their October bike ride. This is a 100 mile ride. Last year I completed the ride, but did not officially finish since I was over the time limit. This year I plan to officially finish and redeem my self. If you have supported me in the past for the half marathons in February, please consider making a donation this year for the bike ride. I will not ask again in February, I promise.
As part of Team LIVESTRONG, I'm making a difference in the fight against cancer. I've joined with other people around the globe and across different events to raise money for the LIVESTRONG Foundation.
The Foundation serves people affected by cancer and empowers them to take action against this disease that is now the world's leading cause of death. LIVESTRONG has become a symbol of hope and inspiration to people affected by cancer around the world.
The money I raise will support programs and services for cancer survivors. These resources help people diagnosed with cancer face the challenges of the disease head on and live life on their own terms. Livestrong.org/WeCanHelp
Please support me as I make a difference in the cancer fight through my participation in Team LIVESTRONG. Thank you!
