    Livestrong Challenge - schedule for 2009

    To disable ads, please log-in.

    Locations and dates for the Livestrong Challenge for 2009:

    Seattle, WA - June 13-14
    San Jose, CA - July 11-12
    Philadelphia, PA - August 22-23
    Austin, TX - October 23-25

    Registration begins December 1, 2008 at http://www.livestrongchallenge.org

    To compare to the 2008 schedule, the Portland event has been changed to Seattle and moved up a couple weeks earlier in June. The other three are basically one year later at the same place.

    I plan to register in early December for the Philadelphia ride, and hopefully will get a couple of donations in lieu of Christmas gifts. Also that way I can make a bigger overall donation than last year and have it paid out in small chunks over eight months.

    Anyone else?

    My team is in again for Philly. We were 17 strong this last year (with 9 of us biking). My sister has decided she will walk the 5K next year. Given that she is 18 months out from a diagnosis that has a median survival of 22 months, I'm so proud of her fight and really believe she will be there walking!! She has also decided she wants her team to compete for biggest team. Given that there were a couple 50+ member teams, it's a big goal. But we plan to try and get her there. Of course most of those teams the majority of people are doing the 5K.

    I'm already planning for some fundraisers too. The latest idea, a scavenger hunt.

    Hey, that's interesting---Seattle this year. Thanks for posting this--I had no idea it was going to switch to Seattle for 2009.

    I think we should ABSOLUTELY have a team!

    I would love to ride the Seattle event. I'll have to talk to DH about making the trip out.

    I'd like to, but I think there's a schedule conflict with the Death Ride.
    I'll get back on the bike soon, I promise!

    the date of the Seattle ride has changed. The email said that due to an existing atheltic event in Seattle, it was changed to Sunday June 21st, packet pick-up being on Saturday the 20th.

    Well, I guess that answers that question! I was waxing back and forth about the Death Ride this year - not sure I'm going to be strong enough to ride it and want to put in the work that will assure I will be (might as well call it for what it is ). But the LiveStrong is the event I do for my mom who passed away from Liver Cancer. So, I guess I will not be doing the death ride.

    fatcyclist is trying to get a huge team together, competing in any and all four of the events. I'm actually thinking about it. I can't make the Philly one, the only one in driving distance from me, so I think San Jose will be the one. Could we form a TE sub-group within the FatCyclist team? He's having such a tough time, I would love to do something BIG for him.

    I just registered for San Jose, and would love to connect with other TE'ers riding.
