Texas 4000 Heads to Alaska

What would compel 70 college kids to spend their Summer riding their bikes over 4,500 miles? What would spark a young person to make a 18 month commitment to training and fundraising? As mind boggling as it sounds, the answer is simple – they ride for a future without cancer.

Texas 4000 is dedicated to fighting cancer by sharing hope, knowledge and charity. The University of Texas student organization headed out just a few days ago on their epic journey from Austin to Anchorage. The LIVESTRONG Foundation is a proud partner for and beneficiary of Texas 4000 fundraising efforts. This past Saturday “Day One”, foundation staff joined the team on their Atlas ride to celebrate the start of the 70 day journey. Check out the great compilation video from the event and wish the team good luck!
