Inspired by Lance Armstrong's extraordinary story, several members of
our riding group, inspired by Jim Manley, committed to raising both
money and awareness in support of the Lance Armstrong Foundation's
efforts to fight cancer and provide support to it's victims. Each year
LAF presents several LiveStrong Challenge Charity rides which provide
an opportunity for cyclists to join the fight by raising funds while
participating in a truly inspirational event.
In 2008 The Ravinia Charity Champions team was formed to support
this effort. With strong support and assistance from the Ravinia Club,
our team raised over $60,000 and participated in the ride in Austin
(Lance's home turf). It was a great experience and we are committed
to return in 2009 and increase our contribution substantially.
Yopu can join the team and raise funds without going to Austin (or
even getting on a bike so I invite you to throw yuor hat in the ring and
join us. Be a part of something extraordinary!
