The 2012 Texas 4000 for Cancer team rolls into Anchorage, Alaska today after riding their bikes 4,500 miles from Austin, Texas to spread hope, knowledge, and charity in the fight against cancer. Way to make me a proud 2009 alum of the ride, guys, and for reminding me how out of shape I am!
The 2012 Texas 4000 for Cancer team just crossed the border into Alaska today, after riding their bicycles over 4,000 miles from Austin, Texas—all in the name of raising hope, knowledge, and charity in the fight against cancer. These University of Texas at Austin students have less than a week of riding left before finishing in Anchorage. As an alumna of this amazing organization, I’m so proud of this group’s dedication to honor the fights and memories of loved ones, including their teammate, Ruel Bobet, who passed away in February. Visit their website to make a donation, read their inspiring blogs, and get involved in their cause!
My 28th birthday is coming up in a few weeks, and you’d better believe that it would make me so happy to complete my $10,000 fundraising goal for cancer programs and services at LIVESTRONG. The only gifts I’m thinking about to mark this special day are donations to support this cause.
In honor of my upcoming birthday, please consider donating $28 for the 28 million people around the world living with cancer today. Your gift helps me get closer to the minimum amount required to do my charity climb. And more importantly: your donation also helps fighters and survivors take serious action against cancer.
I can’t wait to climb Kilimanjaro to honor new and old friends, family, and loved ones who have faced this disease with courage, strength, and hope. Help me meet the minimum fundraising requirement with plenty of time to spare before I leave for Africa!
