Each year, after our students return from their summer ride, they can apply to serve on our Grants Committee with fellow Texas 4000 alumni and supporters from our community. The Grants Committee invites research institutions & support service organizations that our riders visited over the summer to apply for grant funding. The Grants Committee is a continuation of our leadership development program as the riders who raised this money now have the privilege to award it to organizations doing great things in the fight against cancer. These former riders will review proposals, ask follow-up questions, and work to build lasting relationships with our partners providing direct services to those affected by cancer.
Since our inception in 2004, we have awarded over $3.3 million in grants towards the fight against cancer.
