A Message from Lance Armstrong...


Last week I was honored to testify in front of the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee about what our country can do to fight cancer. You can read more about my testimony on the LIVESTRONG Blog. I was thrilled to be invited to testify, and my participation was an important step leading into tomorrow.

Tomorrow is LIVESTRONG Day, a day when more than 600 cancer awareness and fundraising events will take place all across the country. Every staff member from my Foundation is attending a different event, and I'll be visiting a few of them myself.

But tomorrow isn't about me, it's about you – how you will make cancer a priority in your own community. Tomorrow is the day when we want our entire country's eyes to be focused on the cancer fight. Will you help us?

Anyone can take part in LIVESTRONG Day. Here are some things you can do join the fight against cancer:

1. Wear Yellow – Show us how you demonstrate your support for the cancer fight.

2. Attend a LIVESTRONG Day event – From bake sales to bike rides, there's sure to be an event in a community near you.

3. Pick a fight with cancer. Tomorrow only, when you register for the LIVESTRONG Challenge use discount code LSDay08 to receive 1/2-price registration. The LIVESTRONG Challenge is my Foundation's signature fundraising event. Walk, run or ride in Portland, Ore. (June 29), San Jose, Calif. (July 13), Philadelphia, Pa. (August 24) or Austin, Texas (October 25-26), and pick a fight with cancer.

4. Make a donation. Support our efforts to unite and fight cancer through a donation to the LAF.

Tomorrow we can make a difference. Tomorrow let's stand united in the fight against cancer. I hope you'll join me and do your part to make cancer a national priority and conquer this disease.




So excited that I'm officially registered for #3
