Texas 4000 Rides Into Laramie
The 2015 Texas 4000 ride will be stopping in Laramie Monday.
This is day 24 of their 70-day journey from Austin, TX to Anchorage, AK. Seventy-two riders are pedaling more than 4000 miles in the fight against cancer. They are divided into three separate rides in the Rockies, Sierra and Ozarks.
After 18-months of leadership development training, volunteering, fundraising, and cycling, riders are put to the test throughout their summer ride to Alaska. Along their journey, they will visit with cancer survivors, patients, caregivers, and communities to make educational presentations about cancer prevention and early detection. They also use this time to offer hope, encouragement and share their personal stories to cancer fighters of all ages and to those who have been affected by the disease. Every encounter is an inspirational story the riders carry with them on their journey and quest to fight cancer.
