With the Tour de France starting this weekend, my growing interest in cycling, and the inspiration from watching Lance Armstrong, I have decided to do something productive with my latest hobby. In memory of Grandpa and Jeanne's Aunt Toni, I am running the Livestrong Challenge 5K on October 24 and riding the Livestrong Challenge 90 mile ride the next day, October 25 in Austin, Tx.
I am trying to raise $2,500 to help Livestrong/The Lance Armstrong Foundation fight cancer and raise global awareness. If you would like to make a donation, please visit http://austin09.livestrong.org/craig_helmreich
If you don't want to donate, please support my efforts by refraining from kicking me in the calves the week of October 19th. Your support, one way or the other, is greatly appreciated.
