Texas 4000 For Cancer Tribute Gala In Austin Celebrates 10th Anniversary

Tribute_Logo
For a decade, Texas 4000 has taken University of Texas students and grad students on the longest annual charity ride in the world. They begin in Austin and travel more than 4,500 miles to Anchorage, Alaska over the course of 70 days. Now in its tenth year, Texas 4000 has created a new route for its anniversary. This year, it was 69 students who embarked on the trek of a lifetime. The students begin the journey together but then split to follow one of three routes: Rockies, Sierras or Ozarks. In the 10 years since Chris Condit began the project, riders have raised more than $4 million to fight cancer. But the true mission of project goes far beyond that.

The routes are deliberately planned so that the participants can spread hope and share personal stories about the effects on cancer. They also engage in community events that are working to end cancer. The cyclists have now returned and the annual tribute gala will be held to celebrate their success. The night will consist of both live and silent auctions, music and a recognition of the men and women who rode this year. As always, the event will spread Hope, Knowledge and Charity to those in attendance and the community.
