Cycling for a Cause

is an event designed to raise funds for the

Lance Armstrong Foundation

as well as raise awareness about cancer. Its’ realization will involve a college student bicycling from one tip of North America to the other in order to make a difference. This summer he will bicycle

over 12,000 kilometers from Alaska to Panama

, intending to raise $1 for every kilometer he covers along the way.

The Lance Armstrong Foundation

was founded in 1998 by cancer survivor and champion cyclist

Lance Armstrong

. Since then, it has both inspired and empowered people affected by cancer. In the battle with cancer, unity is strength, knowledge is power and attitude is everything.

Follow me throughout this trip which I started on May 3rd. If you enjoy reading my updates, consider making a donation to this worthwhile cause. Every donation, no matter how big or small, will make a tremendous difference.
