Several people have asked me over the past few weeks, “What is that?” in reference to the yellow wristband I have been wearing. The wristband is a symbol of the work being done by the Lance Armstrong Foundation.
Pay attention in the media and you will start to see these band pop up all over the place. So far, I have seen Derek Jeter (New York Yankees), Venus & Serena Williams (tennis), Cheryl Crow (singer), Jay Leno (Late Show host), Robin Williams (actor), and a host of others sporting the bands.
“Yellow wakes me up in the morning.
Yellow gets me on the bike every day.
Yellow has taught me the true meaning of sacrifice.
Yellow makes me suffer.
YELLOW IS THE REASON I’M HERE.”
— Lance Armstrong, seven-year cancer survivor.
Now is your chance to do your part! I am riding in the Ride for the Roses in October. This ride by the Lance Armstrong Foundation raises funds for advocacy, education, public health and research. Part of my requirement to be able to ride is to raise funds…
Please, please, please give to this cause that is near to my heart.
I am riding:
To honor the memory of my father who died of cancer
To support a foundation that does great work
