About Texas 4000 for Cancer
Riders in the Texas 4000 for Cancer raised over 1 million dollars since 2004 to fund cancer research through the American Cancer Society and MD Anderson Cancer Center. Along the 4,500 mile bike ride each year, the cyclists visit with cancer survivors and speak in communities of all sizes to raise awareness about cancer prevention, detection, and treatment. In the words of Texas 4000, “We will instill hope through our actions and our stories. Each rider has been personally affected by cancer, either through experiencing the disease personally or by having a loved one who has. As survivors, we will share the story of our personal experiences with cancer and chronicle our ride to show that through prevention, detection and treatment, one can achieve great things.” Visit www.texas4000.org for more information.
