  • This year we are asking our community of cancer fighters to fundraise alongside the Texas 4000 2022 team by asking their friends, family members, work colleagues, and others they know to donate to support the fight against cancer just like the Texas 4000 2022 team riders do.
  • Participants pay a registration fee to ride, then raise funds to support Texas 4000’s mission to cultivate student leaders & engage communities in the fight against cancer. Registered riders are required to raise a minimum of $100 to be eligible to ride the day of ATLAS Ride.
  • Why are we asking participants to fundraise this year? We believe that together we can do more in the fight against cancer! Funds raised by participants in the ATLAS Ride go to support Texas 4000’s cancer fighting mission, leadership development program, and helps to ensure that more of the funds raised by the Texas 4000 team can go to grants to cancer research and support service organizations. Since 2004, Texas 4000 for Cancer more than $4.6 million has been distributed as grants to cancer research and support service organizations in Texas and communities across the three routes where the riders cycle each year.
  • If you are joining us for just for lunch to celebrate the 2022 team, purchase your food pass through the Registration button above. People who attend with a food pass only are not required to fundraise.

ATLAS Ride FAQ

Health & Safety Protocols
COVID-19 Protocols

To ride safely for this year’s ATLAS Ride, we are implementing various protocols following current guidance for events from the CDC, state, city, and other agencies to keep ATLAS participants, volunteers, staff and the amazing people in Lampasas as safe as possible. Our protocols will be reviewed and may be updated as directed by evolving medical information to ensure everyone’s safety.

Texas 4000 has been working with medical advisors, nonprofit event organizers, and other experts to develop our overall safety protocols. We will continue to update them as further information becomes available so that we have the best practices that fit the situation for this year’s ATLAS Ride.

Personal responsibilities will help ensure a safe ATLAS Ride and will be communicated to participants, staff, volunteers, vendors, and sponsors prior to the event in various ways – phone, email, social media and as updates on the ATLAS Ride webpage. These responsibilities and COVID-19 protocols will be explained in detail several times prior to the event and will evolve if the need requires.

Because of the nature of the pandemic and the ever-changing climate, additional changes may be made up to the last minute. All efforts will be made to ensure our participants, staff, volunteers, vendors, and sponsors have the most up to date information available. Here are some protocols which will be in place: 

*  Pre-ATLAS Ride health screening for everyone – staff, participants, and volunteers
*  Face coverings will be required for everyone – riders, volunteers, and staff throughout ATLAS. Riders may remove their masks when out on the road
*  Hand sanitizer will be available throughout the event at registration, higher traffic areas, and in and around portable toilets 
*  ATLAS signage will promote safe physical distancing practices including maintaining 6 feet of distance or more between others
*  Reduced touchpoints to minimize physical interactions
*  Staff and volunteers will be provided PPE and gloves if their role requires additional interaction
*  Dedicated wait spots will be provided to aid in physical distancing in areas where riders gather such as registration, start line, and restrooms.
*  Anyone at increased risk or exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19 will be directed to stay home

What does the fundraising support?

What if a donor wants to donate by check?

What should I know to share with people about employer matching gifts?

A matching gift from an employee’s company is a great way to double the gift they are making to a non-profit. Matching gift policies vary though from employer to employer. Some companies require the employee’s gift be made through a company site to be eligible for matching. Others require the employee to submit something and then the nonprofit is contacted to verify the gift was made before matching. We suggest that you tell a donor to check with their company’s community relations or HR department about their  policy on matching gifts before making their gift.

Can I mail cash?

No, please do not mail cash donations as it is not safe. You can contact Texas 4000 at info@texas4000.org and make arrangements to bring it to the Texas 4000 office at 1111 W 24th St., Suite 200, Austin, TX 78705.
