2 Weeks Until We're Rocking Austin to Kick Cancer!

Our flights are booked, our bikes are reserved, and we're training.

Zach and I are pumped and ready to ride cancer into the dust in Austin.

Although there is no cure, progress has been made and it is vital that we continue to work, to fight, toward beating this disease. It is time that we make a commitment to close the gap between what we know and what we do.

If this year has taught me 2 things it's this:

  1. Cancer will touch EVERYONE. In every part of your life - family, friendships, work, community. There is not a single circle of my life this year that wasn't affected by cancer directly.
  2. We can push our body to achieve miraculous things. And, when we do it for a good reason or cause, we can excel beyond our wildest dreams.
My goal is not just to participate in the Austin LIVESTRONG Challenge, but to raise $15,000 to help further LIVESTRONG's mission of inspiring and empowering people affected by cancer. So far, between all the Challenges and fundraisers, we're at the halfway mark.

To achieve this goal, I need your help.

If you have been affected by cancer, or you care about this cause, please consider donating toward my fundraising goal. You can donate online at

Support also includes spreading the word to friends and family. 1 in 3 of us will be touched by this disease, or already have been. 28 million are living with it today. Even if you, personally, cannot donate, you may someone who can.

Thank you in advance for your support. Together, we can make a difference in the fight against cancer.

I'm all about free speech, etc, but I have to ask that comments are respectful of other readers, the fact that I, and many of us who follow this blog, support LIVESTRONG, and that you reserve Lance or LIVESTRONG bashing for another forum. As of right now, I'm still allowing Anonymous postings, however, that may not be the case in the future. Thanks!
