Lake Tahoe is on our minds and in our hearts today. We are all hoping the fires can be contained soon without any more damage to this beautiful place. Can you believe it is just 9 months until the mighty argyle arrives in Lake Tahoe to ride America’s Most Beautiful Bike Ride? Team Survivor had a fabulous event in Moab earlier this year along with ongoing training rides every Saturday and a few other big events. As we get ready for the fall it’s time to focus on two areas 1) Recruiting – we have 17 registered to ride but we are always looking for more. To hit our ambitious goal of $100,000 we need more riders! So, please register today if you haven’t and think about people in your circle who would enjoy the Team Survivor experience and invite them along for the ride! Remember we can now recruit from anywhere in the country! 2) Fundraising – it’s never too early to start thinking about your fundraising plan for the year. Let me know if you would like to chat further with the TNT staff to develop your plan! Thanks for signing up with Team Survivor to Cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families.

Blood Cancer Awareness Month
One of our missions is to make people in our circles aware of blood cancer and the devastating impact it has on those with the diagnosis. What better time to get out the word then during Blood Cancer Awareness Month. I will be sending a separate email with content and images to post on social media for our Team Survivor Blood Cancer Awareness Month fundraiser later in the month. As the global leader in the fight against blood cancer, LLS works tirelessly to find cures and provide more support for patients and families than any organization in the world. Their vital work – from helping patients access lifesaving care to taking on childhood blood cancer – cannot wait. THIS is why we ride:
We are the largest nonprofit funder of blood cancer research, investing nearly $1.3 billion in the most pioneering science worldwide since 1949.
EDUCATION & SUPPORT
We are the leading source of free education and support for blood cancer patients and families. We provide personalized, one-on-one support, including assistance with identifying and enrolling in a clinical trial.
POLICY & ADVOCACY
With our nationwide grassroots network of more than 50,000 active online volunteers, we drive policy changes that accelerate the development of new cancer treatments and break down barriers to care.

September 25th – Tour of the Moon
One of my favorites events of the year, the Tour of the Moon starts in downtown Grand Junction with a spectacular trek through the Colorado National Monument. There are two route options, the 64 mile course includes some beautiful farm country while the 41 mile course returns to Grand Junction after climbing the Monument. Registration is still open so make plans to join us as the yellow argyle will be out in full force! We’ll also get to see our teammates Al Van Tine and Erik Mestas who live in the area. I’ll be making dinner reservations on Saturday after the event and sending out an invite for anyone who wants to join us. Register here – https://www.bikereg.com/tourofthemoon
CHUY’S FUNDRAISER September 29th
SAVE THE DATE – Team Survivor will be hosting a fundraiser at Chuy’s in the Tech Center on September 29th (all day). I lived in Austin for several years and spent a lot of time at the original Chuy’s so I love having one in the neighborhood. You can eat in person, pick up or get delivery and a portion will go to the cause. More details and an invite to follow but please mark your calendars today and make plans to join us!
