The people at the foundation spoke with their partners at RadioShack, whom will be donation the amazing sum of $75,000 dollars if Lance Armstrong and LiveStrong are able to get 10,000 people to join the California ride in the next 48 hours.
This is a year when cancer is actually going to become the number one cause of death in the world, and if the foundation is able to obtain the cash, then they will be using it to help survivors and to push the leaders of the world to put up more resources into fighting the disease.

The actual Tour of California, which is the largest cycling competition in the United States starts this coming Sunday, and every competitor of the RadioShack team, including Lance Armstrong, is going to be bringing a person they consider a personal hero for the ride as the “I ride for” stickers that will be on their bicycles will be filled with names of cancer survivors or caregivers whom have inspired them.
They are doing this to remind themselves and all of the people that are going to follow the race that in the fight against cancer, only unity is the factor that make a true difference.
Of course they are only 8 competitors, and there are certainly thousands of stories out there to tell, which is why they created the virtual version of the tour, as they want people to join forces in order to help those whom are suffering of the disease to find strength and courage to fight it. If things do no start to change, then 1 in every 2 people in the planet will suffer of cancer by the year 2030.
This is truly an outstanding way for Armstrong to promote his LiveStrong foundation, and if you actually want to contribute with your participation (no cash involved for you), then visit: http://www.livestrongaction.org/ride/jointheride
