I’m riding to raise money to fight cancer along with Team LIVESTRONG of Cycle Folsom. Donate, and you’ll get link to your site! I’m also logging my cycling miles up to the day of the challenge in this post below. I hope you’ll help me raise some money to fight cancer in the process.
The goal is to raise awareness and support for the 28 million people living with cancer around the world. I have close friends fighting this disease. I personally know what it’s like to live with an unknown condition, and I want to show support by kicking out the miles.
The Davis LIVESTRONG Challenge is on July 10, 2011. I’ve been training, often with fellow Cycle Folsom team members. Many of us will be riding the 105-mile route (from Davis, CA to Lake Berryessa and back). We’ve been putting miles in on the bike in preparation. Now it’s time to ask for your support.
EVERY dollar helps and counts – $5, $10, $25. Below is my fundraising page:
I hope to raise $500 as a minimum. The goal of the Davis Challenge is to raise $1 million. Who will benefit?
- Cancer centers
- University and community-based organizations
- Cancer patients, survivors, and their families!
Donate For Links
I have to throw some SEO into this mix… (Heck, if you see me riding with headphones, I’m probably listening to a podcast from WebmasterRadio.fm.)
Those who donate will get a nofollow link to the site of their choice with their desired anchor text. If you don’t know what that means, I’ll link back to you as a way of saying “thank you for the donation!”
- Donate here: http://davis2011.livestrong.org/danalookadoo
- Return to this page, and leave your website address (link) in the comments.
- I’ll formally thank you online after the event. If you prefer to remain anonymous, that’s OK, too.
Logging Training Miles
I got in the habit of logging training miles during May as part of Cycle Folsom’s participation in May Is Bike Month – a competition in the Sacramento region. I committed to riding as part of Team LIVESTRONG just before that. I’ll log my training miles in preparation of the Davis fundraising event below:
|Date||Time on the Bike||Miles||Total Miles|
|May 2011||A lot||927||927|
|July 10: LIVESTRONG||5:45||106||1,943|
I’ll updated it with each ride through July 10. (Training falters the week of June 6 – off the bike and at SMX Advanced, a search marketing conference in Seattle.) Stay tuned, however, and watch the miles pile on (I hope) in preparation for the Davis LIVESTRONG Challenge.
Please share your story if you have been touched by cancer or know someone who has.
