    I am starting this to tell YOU about something awesome that some friends of mine in Huntsville, Tx are doing.

    They started a facebook group to raise money and awareness for the 28 million cancer survivors in the world.

    The idea is that ONE person can only do a little, but that together, something great can be done.

    As a whole they are trying to ride/run/bike 280,000 miles. Individually, they are trying to raise at least $28 by October 2nd.

    If you love to train and compete, I figure you may want to put all those miles towards a great cause.

    ALL PROCEEDS GO TO THE LIVESTRONG FOUNDATION

    cool, thanks! i'm going to check this out.

    I already did an MS charity ride and doing the ADA ride this weekend. Been debating on a cancer fundraiser for the end of the year, and this may be a good one since it has a super low minimum (I'm starting to feel bad about constantly asking for donations from friends/family).

    Sounds like a good excuse to finally get my cadence sensor fixed on my road bike!! Besides need more event shirts! Gotta ask the wife but a few Q’s the links didn’t answer.

    (If you are only sharing info please let me know and I will contact the poster on FB.)

    1- Does all walking, running, and biking miles count?
    2- Would it be 28.00 each for me and my wife? Would probably donate more but just curious for minimum entry. (seen the seperate reg fee’s).
    3- Do we just update the host of FB or do a log?!


    :smack:<-- Floyd Landis, Tyler Hamilton, Jan Ullrich, etc, etc, etc...- you all broke my heart and I can no longer enjoy the tour :mad:

    I'm just sharing but I think I can answer. Sorry for the delay, I've been ill and just now getting the energy to get on the computer.

    1- Yes, they all count.
    2- It's $28 each person minimum
    3 - If you join the facebook group, you can just log your miles there and the hosts (Jenn or Brad) will update the group total.

    I agree with you about the tour. Just isn't the same now. :mad:

    Your welcome. Hope you are able to participate. :)

    And thank you! I'm just hoping to fall asleep being I'm wide awake now. Steroid shot at 9 pm not a good idea. Plus meds for my severe headache are 1/3 caffeine.
