Livestrong Challenge Eve Part 1 of 2

August 22, 2009

Today, we made the trip over to Montgomery County Community College in nearby Blue Bell, PA to visit the Livestrong Village and collect the racing bibs, and collectable shirts for our team.  The village was absolutely hopping with activity, as the Livestrong Challenge Philadelphia is completely filled! There will be over 6,000 participants! I am floored by the number of people who are going to arrive for this race.  And that doesn’t even include people who are coming just to support those that are participating!

In attendance, at the Livestrong Village today, were Eddie George (former Heisman Trophy winner) and Chris Carmichael (Lance’s personal trainer). Unfortunately, they happened to leave just as we were exiting the registration tent! Boo… Therefore, my mission is still incomplete. Mission 1.) Grab a picture with Eddie George.  Mission 2.) Run the Livestrong Challenge  Mission 3.) See if I can snag a photo of Fat Cyclist and/or Drew from Blame Drew’s Cancer. 

I might be able to accomplish this last feat at the Livestrong Challenge dinner tonight at Turbine Hall, in Chester, PA.  I’m looking forward to this swanky affair of dining, socializing, and of course discussing the prevention of cancer.  Keynote speakers tonight will be Ethan Zohn of Survivor Fame, Drew of Blame Drew’s Cancer, Lance’s bud, “College,” Elden (Fatcyclist) and the musical stylings of Amos Lee.  Therefore, this should be a personal discussion of the impact of cancer and what we can do to stop it.  After dinner, we will return to sort shirts, and bags for everyone and then for me (blog and post pictures) then to bed! Cause tomorrow will be an early morning!!!! More to come on this post!

  1. Hi!
    After Philly I decided to get to Austin and keep fighting. To raise money, I’m auctioning off a set of bright pink tires, any chance you could help me by giving a mention or spreading the word?
    Info is here:
    Thank you for any help you can give me!
