Lance, President Clinton and Mayor Bloomberg just spoke and made their case for taking LIVESTRONG global.
Mayor Bloomberg and his foundation made a commitment to our global fight. We could not be more excited and thankful to Mayor Bloomberg for joining us in this fight.
We would also like to thank President Clinton and all of the staff of the Clinton Global Initiative for allowing Lance to share the stage with so many other amazing people trying to make the world a better place. President Clinton in his remarks referred to Lance as “one leader who empowers others” and that is our hope with this campaign. That Lance, and his return to professional cycling, will serve as a catalyst to bring individuals, organizations, corporations and governments together to fight this disease.
