With over 800 bike and run participants plus the hundreds of spectators last year, the 2012 ERRACE event raised over $185,000 for the Helen and Harry Gray Cancer Center-Avon and the LIVESTRONG Foundation. Because of the enormous success of last year?s event, ERRACE was the LIVESTRONG Foundation?s top grassroots fundraiser for 2012. Thanks to our top fundraising team, miles4mary and cyclists and runners like you, the ERRACE event now has an official partnership with the LIVESTRONG Foundation. Please join us during our first year as an official partnered event of the LIVESTRONG Foundation, benefiting the Foundation and Helen and Harry Gray Cancer Center!
The fight is personal this year for the ERRACE team as we lost our co-executive director, Allyson Caputo. After a long and courageous battle with cancer, Allyson has passed with a huge victory in our hearts. As the driving force behind the ERRACE event, she was a true inspiration to all who knew her. Her vibrant purpose behind her intentional actions has left a lasting legacy; her life was not defined by its length, but by its glory. We continue on in her example of perseverance, and we challenge all of you to do the same.
The best armor for fighting the fierce battle against cancer is raising awareness. We plan to not only raise awareness, but to raise funds, increase participation, inspire good health, instill the importance of good fitness and promote the idea of self-awareness.
