Lance takes Cancer Campaign Global

Lance Armstrong is taking his cancer campaign global and Australia will be his launching pad in the Tour Down Under in January 2009. He is planning to race his bike all over the world and highlight the need to address the disease that claims over 8 million lives a year.

The Lance Armstong Foundation (LAF) has worked hard in the United States to inspire and empower people with cancer and has achieved some amazing milestones along the way. Now the focus has moved to a much larger stage and LAF will be joining with local partners, organisations and world leaders to achieve three major goals:

1. Together we will end the stigma of cancer and turn cancer victims into cancer survivors.

2. Together we will build an international grassroots movement that will take cancer from isolation to collaboration.

3. Together with world leaders, we will transform cancer from obscurity to priority.

I will be proudly running in the 2008 New York Marathon as part of the LIVESTRONG ARMY and need your support to achieve my fundraising goals. I am calling on those of you that have thought about helping out to now make the commitment and dig deep to support this great cause.

Donations large and small can be made directly via my Personal Fundraising Page, or you can purchase tickets in the Great LIVESTRONG Raffle, with fantastic prizes on offer. A big thanks to all those who have already contributed.
