FROM LANCE ARMSTRONG (PRESS RELEASE): October 2, 1996 is the day I was diagnosed with advanced testicular cancer and began the fight of my life. This year on October 2, we celebrate LIVESTRONG Day. ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s the day members of our community celebrate the spirit of LIVESTRONG by organizing and attending hundreds of events and raising awareness about the fight against cancer in communities across the globe. LIVESTRONG Day is critically importantÃ¢â‚¬â€and I need you to step up.
Will you join us for LIVESTRONG Day? We make it easy to host and find events in your neighborhood with our map:
By joining an international wave of coordinated grassroots activity on LIVESTRONG Day you can make world leaders and the media pay attention while educating your own community about the fight against cancer.
452 people just like you have already signed up for LIVESTRONG DayÃ¢â‚¬â€but we need more. If we can generate hundreds of local events and thousands of RSVPs through our new, interactive map, we can dramatically show world leaders that cancer touches everyone.
Being a part of LIVESTRONG Day is simple. Our map also makes it easy to search for and RSVP to events already happening near you. And you can also host any type of event you want, whether itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a bake sale or a bike ride, fundraising in your neighborhood or getting your co-workers to wear yellow.
By taking part in LIVESTRONG Day, you can help your friends and neighbors understand that fighting cancer isnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t just up to doctors and researchersÃ¢â‚¬â€itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s up to all of us. Please take a minute to add or find an event, and join our cause.
