Calling All Cheerleaders

While I am certainly no athlete, let alone a long-distance cyclist, I just created a virtual bike to "ride" in honor of Georgia in LIVESTRONG Action's "I Ride for LIVESTRONG," a 12-day virtual version of the Tour of California. The Tour is the biggest cycling event in the United States, and Lance Armstrong and Team RadioShack are dedicating their ride to cancer survivors and caregivers and raising awareness about the worldwide fight against cancer. You can do the same by creating your own virtual bike and dedicating it to a survivor or caregiver who has inspired you, or you can go here to "cheer" me on, which means just entering your name and email address. You can enter one cheer a day through May 23rd, and the more cheers I get, the "faster" I ride! So many quotation marks in this "post!"

If we can get 10,000 riders signed up in these first 48 hours, RadioShack will donate $75,000 to LIVESTRONG! And at the end of the race, the top three finishers (those with the most cheers) will get their "I Ride for ..." bumper stickers on Lance's bike at this year's Tour de France! The remaining top 100 riders will get their stickers on the bikes and gear of other members of Team RadioShack. But most important, we're sharing Georgia's story and helping her help other kids fight cancer!

SO, no money required, just a "Hip Hip Hooray" on this page once a day until May 23rd. Thanks, y'all! LIVESTRONG!
