On May 30th, 2015, I, along with my team from Texas 4000 will embark on a 70 day journey to bike 4500 miles to support cancer research. Join me in my fight so that one day we can live in a world that is cancer free. Texas 4000 for Cancer is a 501(c)(3) federally registered non-profit organization, and the longest annual charity bicycle-ride in the world. It was founded in 2003 by The University of Texas at Austin student, Chris Condit, who battled Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. Every year since then, a new group of UT students make a 70-day bike ride to Alaska with a mission of spreading hope, knowledge, and charity. We share hope by letting those touched by cancer know that there are people like us riding for them and are determined to eliminate the disease. Each day, the team members dedicate their rides to different people in memory or to honor a cancer fighter. We share knowledge by bringing life-saving information about cancer prevention to communities big and small. During their 70-day journey, the riders’ stop in towns, schools, and hospitals to interact with the community, raise cancer awareness, and promote early detection programs. We share charity by making a commitment to support cancer research and lead the charge in overcoming cancer. Each rider is required to raise a minimum of $4500, roughly a dollar for every mile. Texas 4000 is one of the highest return on investment charities with a 94% return. To date, Texas 4000 for Cancer has donated over $4 million to M.D. Anderson Cancer Research Center, Dell Children’s Hospital, UT Biomedical Engineering Initiatives, and LIVESTRONG support services. In our fight against cancer, we aim to provide love and hope for everyone who has been affected by cancer, and ride for those who can’t. My goal for fundraising is currently $9,000 dollars. The money we raise goes to cancer research with M.D. Anderson, the Biomedical Engineering Department here at the University of Texas at Austin, and the LIVESTRONG Navigation Center. We are a 501(c)3 non-profit meaning any donation is tax-deductible. I hope you'll join me in the fight against cancer with Texas 4000 for Cancer. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- •Visit the website to learn even more about the organization: •Visit my personal rider page: •Donate to me directly at: •Mail a check Send a check addressed to "Texas 4000 for Cancer" with "Mac Nghiem" in the memo line.

I can't predict my journey but I know some days will be rough but with these ride dedications I'll know why I ride. I'll remember that I ride so that no one has to lose a loved one to cancer anymore. I ride for a cancer free future. Even if you cannot donate, sharing this event page with anyone who might be interested is a great help. It would be amazing to get the word out to reach as many people as possible about this organization and what we do. Thank you so much for your support, Mac Xuan Nghiem (713)-261-8244
