Big D to Create Cycling Team
Attention all cycling enthusiasts! Big D Sports is in the process of building a team for the October 21st LIVESTRONG Challenge in Austin. The ride will offer three different distances (20, 65 & 100 mile options) and Big D is looking for individuals to join the team. This is not a race, but a fully supported charity ride for a wonderful cause. Big D is soliciting its sponsors to cover the entry fee and lodging expenses so all you have to do is raise money for the cause. Big D is asking all participants to raise at least $250.
Why get involved? In 2010, cancer became the number one cause of death on the planet. The fact is that one in three men and one in two women will be diagnosed with cancer during their lifetime. LIVESTRONG offers one on one support for survivors to help them face the challenges of cancer head on. Fund raising is critical to the continuation of these programs. Cancer has taken a toll on billions of families already, including Big D owners Jeff Sampson (family), Pedro Cortez (father and grandmother) and Susan Cortez (father, aunt, grandmother and grandfather). Big D has decided to join Team LIVESTRONG and raise awareness and funds for the fight against cancer.
Besides, it’s a fun way to exercise and Big D will be hosting weekly training rides to prepare for the event. These training rides will be a great way for you to meet your fellow teammates. If you would like to join the team, contact email@example.com and Big D will be in touch with registration details and training schedule. We hope you will join us in our fight.
