In three weeks 20+ cyclists and 16 volunteers will be leaving Calgary and riding to Austin in a 24 hour relay style ride. The Calgary to Austin Peloton Project (CTAPP) is raising awareness and support for the Lance Armstrong Foundation and cancer survivors across both nations. To date we have raised over $300,000 in only our first year with plans to expand next year. Our plan is to arrive in Austin in time to participate in the Ride for the Roses.
Please check out our website at www.ctapp.org for more information.
I am a cancer survivor who met Lance during my chemotherapy and has had the opportunity to ride with him.
