I had the honor of attending one of our top Partnered Events, ERRACE, this past weekend, and quickly discovered that it was so much more than an athletic event. The town of Avon, Conneticut came together to support their loved ones they had lost over the years, and you could feel the electricity in the air. What this community has done in a few short years is absolutely amazing!

The 5k run/walk was in memory of Allyson Caputo, who passed away last October after a long and courageous battle with cancer. She was the driving force in the founding and running of ERRACE, and an inspiration to all who knew her. Her life was not defined by its length, but by its glory.

The event hosted over 650 riders/runners and will only continue to grow. ERRACE is home to some of the most beautiful country I have ever seen in one of the most united communities. I look forward to being a part of the event again. I will be back next year with my bike!!

THANK YOU to Dr. Andrew Caputo, the over 650 riders/runners, hundreds of spectators, countless volunteers, bike shops, vendors and sponsors who made ERRACE 2013 a HUGE success! This event embodies the mission of the LIVESTRONG Foundation and it is such an honor to be working together.
