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 cancer research institutions & support service organizations that Texas 4000 riders visited over the summer to apply for grant funding. The Grants Committee is a continuation of the Texas 4000 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 organizations providing direct services to those affected by cancer.
Since our inception in 2004, we have awarded over $4.0 million in grants towards the fight against cancer.
