It's all about the team

"The way a team plays as a whole determines its success. You may have the greatest bunch of individual stars in the world, but if they don't play together, the club won't be worth a dime."
- Babe Ruth -

A couple of years ago, I started thinking about ways to promote the ideas and the work of the LAF in Europe, and I thought it would be a good plan to form a European cycling team.

Basically, what this means is that we Europeans should unite in our fundraising efforts, so that we will be more visible as a group to the Foundation and the American fundraisers. I’m sure there are a lot of Europeans trying to raise money for the LAF already, but they are scattered around as individuals- as a group we would receive more attention and show the Americans that there are very dedicated cyclists in Europe as well.

However, this team is not supposed to be exclusively for Europeans. Cancer is an illness that affects people from all around the world. So this is the team for you if you want to join an international collaborative effort to make a difference in the fight against cancer!!

You don't have to be a brilliant athlete to ride with us, either. You can walk, run, volunteer at the Challenge or even support us while staying at your own home- the only requirement we have is being enthusiastic about making a difference in the fight against cancer and celebrating the Livestrong®

All you have to do is register at the Livestrong® Challenge webpage and join our team “2007 European Cyclists”. The registration fee is $50. If you want to participate in the walk or volunteer at the event, that’s all you have to do. However, if you want to participate in one of the cycling events, you need to raise at least an additional $250.

If you join the team, you will automatically receive regular team updates. Every single one counts, so please join us by clicking here:

If you can’t make it to Austin October 12-14th 2007, but wish to support the Lance Armstrong Foundation in its fight against cancer, you are more than welcome to donate on my fundraising page and each sum will be greatly appreciated.
