I say again and again that I have amazing friends. They never fail me in being extraordinary and today, I want to reach out for my friend Sarah who will be doing something extraordinary for a very worthy cause…I’ll let her tell you in her own words but at the end of this, please contribute to her cause…even if it’s $5…and pass this on:
24 Hours of Booty!
On September 23, 2009, I’ll be riding my bike in 24 Hours of Booty, a fundraising event for the Lance Armstrong Foundation, which supports national and local cancer initiatives.
24 Hours of Booty, which originated in my home state of North Carolina, is the official 24-hour cycling event of the Lance Armstrong Foundation. Over the course of 24 hours (plus food and nap time, of course), I’ll be riding my bike at least 100 miles.
Founded in 1997 by cancer survivor and kick-ass cyclist, Lance Armstrong, the LAF provides the information and tools people living with cancer need to live strong.
My goal is to raise $500 for the Lance Armstrong Foundation, and I would love your support. Funds I raise will go to worthy recipients including the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults, the Brain Tumor Fund, Keep Pounding, Johns Hopkins, and the Hendrick Marrow Program. For more information, visit www.24hoursofbooty.org.
Why I’m Riding
“If children have the ability to ignore all odds and percentages, then maybe we can all learn from them. When you think about it, what other choice is there but to hope? We have two options, medically and emotionally: give up, or fight like hell.”
– Lance Armstrong
I’m fortunate to be able to say that no one close to me has passed away from cancer. I have known many strong, amazing individuals who have fought cancer and have beat it, time and again.
I’m riding so that I can continue to say “no one close to me has passed away from cancer.” I’m riding to provide young cancer patients with the support they need to keep up the fight. I’m riding to ensure that leukemia patients have access to bone marrow donors. I’m riding for cutting-edge medical research that might one day put an end to cancer altogether. I’m riding for you, your friends, and your family. Please support me today.
