Join me in the fight for a cancer free future and donate here: On May 30th, 2015, I, along with 97 other University of Texas at Austin students, will embark on a 70 day bike ride from Austin, Texas to Anchorage, Alaska. We represent the 2015 Texas 4000 team, a group of students passionate about a cancer free future. Over our 70 day journey to Alaska is more than just a bike ride, we will stop in various communities and put on cancer awareness programs to spread HOPE, KNOWLEDGE, and CHARITY in the fight against cancer! Texas 4000 for Cancer is a non-profit organization dedicated to the fight against cancer and is the LONGEST ANNUAL CHARITY BIKE RIDE in the WORLD. Since its inception in 2004, Texas4000 has donated over $4 million towards cancer research. Most of the funds raised have been granted to the M.D. Anderson Cancer Research Center, Dell's Children's Hospital, the LIVESTRONG survivorship programs, and the UT Biomedical Engineering Department. We are proud to say that 94% of every dollar you donate will aid in the fight against cancer by funding research institutions and programs like these. I joined Texas 4000 in honor of my mom being a breast cancer survivor. I ride for her and for a better future with more time with the ones we love. This fight will not be easy. My teammates and I will go through extensive training in this 1.5 year long commitment and will sacrifice our summer to spread hope, knowledge, and charity for a cancer free future. Each rider is required to raise $4,500 for the cause, but my personal goal is to raise $7,000 to donate to the fight against cancer. None of this will be possible without your support! ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Visit the website to learn more about Texas4000: MY STORY: Mail a check: -Send a check addressed to "Texas 4000 for Cancer" with "Monica Carrizal" in the memo line. -And send it to: Texas4000 901 S.
