On May 30th, 2015, I will begin a life-changing 70-day, 4,500 mile journey by biking from Austin, Texas to Anchorage, Alaska with the University of Texas 2015 Texas 4000 Team. Together, we will complete the world’s longest annual charity bike ride and strive to fight cancer by spreading the three pillars of Hope, Knowledge, and Charity.
At the start of each day of the journey we give a ride dedication to honor and support those affected by cancer and their families. Our yearly ride has become a symbol of the struggle to fight and end cancer. We will ride an average of 70-100 miles a day through heat, cold, wind, sleet, and rain to show our support and dedication to those who are fighting an even harder battle each and every day.
Along the route, we will stop in towns, schools, and hospitals to speak and share with the communities, raise cancer awareness, show support, and promote early detection programs for cancer. We will also give presentations with life-saving cancer prevention and detection advice.
Texas 4000 for Cancer is a 501(c)(3) federally registered non-profit organization founded in 2003 by University of Texas student and Hodgkin’s Lymphoma survivor, Chris Condit. Today, Texas 4000 has raised and donated over $4 million dollars to cancer research centers including M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, UT Biomedical Cancer Research Center and the LIVESTRONG Cancer Navigation Center. With a 94% return rate, Texas 4000 is proud to be one of the highest returning charity organizations.
HOW YOU CAN HELP
Each rider is required to raise $4,500 – each dollar represents one mile of our journey and each mile represents the long and difficult fight to end cancer. To fundraise this money, I plan on designing and selling shirts and hopefully having an event! But to reach my goal I will need your help too! Please know that the money I’m raising goes towards cancer research and not towards costs or supplies for the actual bike ride. Our bikes and food are graciously donated to us by businesses and sponsors and along the ride we will be camping or staying in churches, schools, and host homes of family members and other kind supporters. Also, since Texas 4000 is a registered non-profit organization, your donation is 100% tax deductible.
Another way you can help is by sharing your stories. If you have someone you would like me to ride for please share their name and their story with me so that I can dedicate my ride toward them. We are all in this fight together! Your donation and support will help us get one step closer to finding the cure to cancer and it will show support for the Texas 4000 team’s mission and help us to spread Hope, Knowledge, and Charity not only from Austin to Anchorage but across the world!
