Riding for LiveSTRONG on My Birthday -- Again!
This year we also celebrating my dear friend Paul Basken's 50th Birthday on the bike by raising money for cancer awareness and the cure. It is a great tradition.
And please remember October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
I urge folks to give to Lance's organization or the wellness program of your choice.
Spotsylvania Livestrong Day Cancer Awareness Event:
October 2, 2011
Every year, the Lance Armstrong Foundation, AKA LIVESTRONG holds a global cancer awareness day. Last year almost 1500 events of all sizes and descriptions were held all over the world. This year, residents of Spotsylvania and the region are holding a SPOTSYLVANIA LIVESTRONG DAY on the grounds of our fabulous new Spotsylvania Regional Medical Center. Our goal is not only to raise awareness and funds in the fight against cancer, but we want to help improve the lives of the 11 million people in the USA and the 28 million people around the world who are living with cancer! Together we can do more!
Here is what we have planned and we look forward to see you there!
We will be holding a 7 kilometer (4.35 mile) RACE, RUN, JOG, AND WALK! Too far? The join us in walking as far as you want and can around our beautiful new hospital. One time around is about a mile!
NOT A RUNNER? No problem: Join us on a beautiful BIKE RIDE of either 25 or 50 miles.
Or come to our Health Fair and learn how you can eat better, LIVESTRONG and learn ways to reduce your chances of being impacted by cancer!
