    Livestrong

    Hi, I am new so forgive me if this is the wrong place to place this post. I am an avid cyclist and have a few events scheduled for this year. Morse Metric on Sunday, TOMRV in June, Bikejournal.com Reunion in July, RAGBRAI also in July and LIVESTRONG Challenge in August.

    I am trying to raise money for the Lance Armstrong Foundation! Has anyone had a lot of success at fundraising for their cycling events? If so, what did you do? What's your secret? I am all ears! I know a lot of people do the MS150, but don't hear a lot about how everyone goes about fundraising for their event. Or does everyone reach the minimum to participate and leave it at that? Frustrated here in Indy!

    Thanks for your help!

    Just ask a lot of people. If someone says they'll be glad to sponsor you and forgets, make sure to remind them -- as long as you're pleasant about it, they'll be glad you did.
    Please sponsor me for the 2009 LIVESTRONG Challenge Philadelphia at this link.
    Help the Lance Armstrong Foundation fight cancer.
